Beach litter is at its highest level since records began

Merseyside waste management firm Gaskells joined up with the Friends of Crosby Beach volunteer group to run a clean-up of Crosby beach last weekend.

The partnership aims to raise awareness of worsening coastal conditions given that beach litter is at its highest level since records began.

This weekend 20 staff from Gaskells turned out to collect rubbish that had been left at the beach or had been washed up by the tide.

Staff recovered over 15 bags of this rubbish, of which consisted of items from empty beer bottles to baby wipes.

Commercial Director at Gaskells Waste, Denise Banks, said: “Alongside with cleaning up, we also hope to educate people about the importance of sustainability”.

Friends of Crosby Beach volunteer group has been running monthly clean-ups of the beach since they began in January of 2017.

They have also involved local schools in this, working towards creating a way in which local people can understand the impact we have on the coastal environment.
