Divers join the clean up

Volunteer divers, NARC, recently carried out an underwater clean up at Hobbs Point, Pembroke Dock and half a tonne of litter and waste was recovered. Despite previous clean ups, volunteers were surprised once again at some of the items that turned up. Alongside the usual shopping trolleys, bicycles, and traffic signs, a car radiator and a washing machine were also recovered. 

Hobbs Point sits on the Cleddau Estuary, an area designated a Special Area of Conservation. Keep Wales Tidy Fly-tipping Officer commented “The fly-tipping taking place at Hobbs Point is having a negative impact on such an important conservation area. It also detracts from the enjoyment of other water users such as anglers and swimmers, who could get entangled with the items lurking just below the surface.” 

The clean up was organised as part of the Pride in Our Communities Project, operated by Keep Wales Tidy, Pembrokeshire County Council and Environment Agency Wales, and part-funded by the EUs Objective-1 Programme.
