No butts about cleanup ef­fort

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

WHAT do a sy­ringe, a red­bel­lied black snake, a horse shoe, a tur­tle, a packet of tea­spoons and a full tin of spaghetti have in com­mon?

These items were all found dur­ing the road­side cleanup by Gayn­dah Lions Club and Freema­sons on Satur­day morn­ing.

The cleanup was part of the Adopt a Road pro­gram and fol­lowed the Bur­nett Hwy for about 2km, start­ing at Zon­hoven Park.

Five vol­un­teers each filled a hes­sian bag with road­side lit­ter.

Peter Spencer from the Lions Club said he “got to 111 cig­a­rette butts be­fore giv­ing up count­ing”.
