Rubbish, why is this necessary

I was going shopping after walking Motley along the Oder river Damm, but had to come home to get rid of this and give my hands a good wash.

I had my phone with me, but as usual I didn't take a photo of something I should have done, this litter all over the footpath.
I used to carry a plastic bag with me for occasions like this, but the last time I used it I obviously forgot to replace it so had to use this little bag I carry the sh1t shovel in.

There are a few cyclist now as its holiday time, but I dont think it was one of them as it was at a point where the fishermen leave their cars to go to fish at the river, rubbish is often found in their vicinity, beer bottle and soft drink bottles quite often.
Some humans dont deserve this world.

Same here by the river Tyne. Makes my blood boil. Not anglers though. When the sun is out it brings out rats from the nearest towns where litter is something they live with.

We rarely see dumped rubbish here in Normandy as the local council dumps are free and lots of recycling bins about.

This is nothing to do with that kind of rubbish Ray, its people who just throw fag packets, chocolate wrappers etc, but this was a broken white plastic bag like the ones we have in supermarkets for fruit and veg. the bag obviously split with all that stuff inside and whoever just left it scattered on the path.

Makes my blood boil. As above it is one of the most talked about local topics, along with speeding motorists. I, like you Jan, carry a bag to collect it on my two daily dog walks. It does have some effect because one lay-by, I pass through, used to be absolutely awful. Since I took the car down there to clear the whole lot up it has remained fairly litter free. The same thing happened along the road from our village shop. Youngsters would go in the shop after school and buy chocolate biscuits, drinks etc and just discard the wrappers along a verge. I cleared this verge for months and then it suddenly stopped. Not sure why. Perhaps they left school? I like to think they saw this little old lady clearing it all up and felt sorry for me but I doubt it.

It should be added to the school curriculum " take your litter home" otherwise you leave it for old ladies with a smacking stick to come behind you to pick it up
