I NOTICE the County Press is promoting a campaign to get rid of the litter and flytipping that is ruining this beautiful island.

Where I live (Brading), I regularly walk the roads with my BAG ( bag and glove).

Lots of people say what a good job I am doing, which is kind, but what we really need is a campaign from a local and influential source such as yourselves to get people taking a BAG (bag and glove) out on their walk.

If we all did this once a week, we could really make a difference. Secondly, the litter is principally plastic bottles and takeaway cups/ boxes etc from KFC/McDonalds etc.

How the County Press launched the litter competition last week.

With your influence, could we at least persuade these lucrative businesses to at least sell only reusable cups.

We adapted quickly to no plastic bags — it’s all a habit. I have reported flytipping on the Adgestone Quiet Road twice, as each time the amount had increased. Nothing was done at all and no reply.

I walked past today and the pile is bigger — mattresses, bedroom furniture etc ( the hallmarks of several lazy house clearances).
