BeCA raised some concerns with SCRC on some of the rubbish floating around in the lakes. Some is rubbish which has blown into the lake while other are items which have been tossed in there.
BeCA and many other community members fail to understand why some people choose to throw rubbbish into the lake.
Kate from SCRC the Waterway Operations Team called BeCA recently to tell us that the waterways clean up team had visited the lakes on Monday. They did a quick pick up at a couple of the trouble spots around the lake edges and the wetlands behind the Unity College. The cleanup team plans to return later this week with a kayak to remove all the floating rubbish on both the the top and bottom lakes.
