Ross Womble Sandra Brown has been busy doing her bit to keep Ross tidy along with the Ross Community Clean Up Crew.

Up to four times a week Sandra passes the brook at Morrisons and has noticed glove bags constantly being discarded into the stream.

She has reported this issue to Morrisons but has yet to see them take action.

The Gazette approached Morrisons for comment, they said: “We have spoken to the store who have advised us that they are working hard to keep litter to a minimum and that the cleaning team are regularly picking up litter from around the store.”

Sandra Brown said: “I use FixMyStreet a lot to report everything from blocked drains to fly-tipping, and of course full street bins. I’m a Womble litter picker so it just seems part of the job to report issues I can’t fix myself.” She added that she prefers FixMyStreet to the councils website reporting system. FixMyStreet is an independent website, built by the charity mySociety. Their aim is to make it easier to report problems in the community, even if it’s not clear who those reports should go to.

She also recommends the LitterLotto, a scheme where you can win money for just binning your rubbish. She’s been dropping off posters to shops and businesses around town to promote it and help reduce litter. She said: “I rarely use a litter picker and I don’t wear a hi-vis because I want to try and normalise litter picking.
