Rubbish left by builders could pollute the Serpentine River system.
Members of the Byford Enviro-Link and the By ford Progress Association have been picking up rubbish from the public open space that runs along Manjedal Brook.
Twenty bags were taken out of the Brook while the total for the immediate vicinity is now more than 300 bags.
The bulk of the rubbish is builders waste including cement bags, brick wrapping, cardboard boxes, metres and metres of plastic wrap, polystyrene packaging and some takeaway food containers, drink bottles and cans.
This rubbish would all have been carried down into the Serpentine River and from there out to pollute our oceans, contaminating the fish we eat and killing sea animals and birds.
While we are doing our best to pick the rubbish up before it gets into the waterways, we are also working on ways to stop this disgraceful littering occurring in the first place.
