Lit­ter picker is re­cy­cling hero

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

A Dum­bar­ton vol­un­teer has been pre­sented with a re­cy­cling award for col­lect­ing hun­dreds of cof­fee cup lids from across the town. Jonathan Rainey, 23, was awarded a Clean Up Scot­land Hero of the Month award for his ef­forts which contributed to an ex­hi­bi­tion. As part of the na­tional Clean up Scot­land cam­paign, or­gan­ised by Keep Scot­land Beau­ti­ful, Jonathan loy­ally col­lected and la­belled each lid with de­tails of the lo­ca­tion that they were found. They formed an in­te­gral part of the pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion at the Gallery of Mod­ern Art in Glas­gow. An ea­ger en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist, Jonathan can reg­u­larly be found out and about clean­ing up the lo­cal spa­ces. He also helps raise aware­ness of his ef­forts and other Clean Ups in the area on so­cial me­dia. He said: “Whilst I re­ally en­joy clean­ing up lit­ter from my lo­cal area, I wish that I did not have to. I hope that peo­ple re­ally do stop drop­ping their lit­ter.”
