A walk, litter pick and litter count is taking place on the Wirral Way this weekend.

To mark Earth Day, the council’s leisure services Active Wirral team has partnered with Energise Cycles and Trash Free Trails to hold a trail clean on Saturday, April 27.

The trail clean is described by the organisers as 'a walk, litter pick and litter count all in one'.

Held at 11am to 2pm, the session will start at the Banks Road car park in Lower Heswall near the Yot Café and head along the Wirral Way.

At Wirral Country Park Visitor’s Centre, the trail will loop back along the bridle way to the Banks Road car park to complete the loop.

Since the Trash Free Trails’ Spring Clean campaign was launched five years, more than 60,000 individual items of single-use pollution have been removed from public green space and trails.

In 2023 alone Earth Day Spring Clean events across the UK removed more than 50% of that amount.

The removal of litter, or to use their terminology ‘Single-Use Pollution’, has been the heart of the Trash Free Trails mission since its inception in 2017.
