Cleaning up in our own backyards

Several times a week Munta (unemployed farm dog) and I go for a bike ride/ run. (I ride). It serves several purposes...exercise for both Munta and me, an excuse to get out in the sunshine and enjoy nature. Even though we are on a public road there is very little traffic and the scenery is lovely, and different bird life to enjoy.
oops - didn't notice what was out!
The other thing we do is pick up rubbish to keep the kilometres on either side of our place looking good. I figure if everyone cleaned up between their drive and the next, the world would be a much more beautiful place. Some of the rubbish appears to be domestic, cat food tins, milk bottles etc. I have had a good response from our local District Council about getting them to talk to the recycling contractors, as I think it flies off their trucks. The council also sent us a pile of rubbish bags to help with clean up, and asked to be informed if it was really bad, and they would send someone to clean it up. Impressed.
