Cardiff Rivers Group removes rubbish from the Wharf
- Thursday, 15 December 2011
Fifteen volunteers showed their commitment to improving the environment of Cardiff on Sunday 11 November as they braved horrendous weather conditions to finish removing rubbish from the wharf.
When most people were hiding indoors from the wintry elements, the hardy volunteers from Cardiff Rivers Group and Atlantic Wharf Residents’ Association gave up their Sunday afternoon to help Keep Wales Tidy clean up of Atlantic Wharf.
The volunteers, who were assisted by local PCSOs, donned their waterproofs and tackled the deep waters of the wharf using grappling hooks. On many occasions, the hooks would become snagged on underwater obstructions, but the Cardiff Rivers Group dinghy came to the rescue to free trapped ropes!
Together, the team collected a tonne of waste, including: 18 bags of rubbish, 8 bags of recycling, 2 bikes, 3 chairs, 5 trolleys, loads of metal fencing, roadside barriers, bike tyre, computer monitor, 2 fishing rods, corroded parasol, children's bike and a football.
All rubbish was disposed of by Cardiff County Council’s Parks Department. Volunteers were rewarded by the Holiday Inn Express who kindly provided refreshments at the end of the hard day’s work.
