Lit­ter­ers get rub­bished

CO­RAL Culling hates see­ing rub­bish in Gos­nells.

Her keen­ness to keep her sub­urb clean prompted her to get in­volved in the Adopt a Spot ini­tia­tive along with the Gos­nells Com­mu­nity Men’s Shed to pick up rub­bish along the Can­ning River be­hind the shed last week.

The City of Gos­nells, in part­ner­ship with Keep Aus­tralia Beau­ti­ful WA, is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents, com­mu­nity groups and busi­nesses to adopt a spot and keep the area lit­ter free.

Ms Culling said they found al­most 50 bags worth of rub­bish along with an old mat­tress around the river.

“I don’t like see­ing rub­bish around,” she said.

“I saw what was un­der the bridge on ei­ther side of the river and I knew I couldn’t do it on my own.”

Ms Culling said her and 15 vol­un­teers helped col­lect the rub­bish and en­cour­aged peo­ple to keep their sub­urb clean.

“I just don’t like see­ing rub­bish when I walk around town,” she said.

“Fri­day and Satur­day night seems to be a bad time.

“If we didn’t have junk mail, junk food and peo­ple drink­ing and smok­ing then there prob­a­bly wouldn’t be a lot of rub­bish around.”
