Kirkstall riverbank clean-up brings in the rubbish!

25 July 2016

It was dubbed the ‘ten-tonne tip run’ – and the amount of rubbish cleared by volunteers at the third Kirkstall riverbank clean-up on Saturday showed just why.

Everything from discarded Morrisons shopping trolleys to litter, electrical equipment, driftwood, the effects of flytipping and himalayan balsam were cleared out of the banks of the River Aire by local volunteers.

All three clean-ups have seen tonnes of rubbish removed from the riverbank following the Boxing Day floods which left parts of Kirkstall ROad under several feet of water.

Here are just some of the tweets from the day:
