Snowdon litter clear-up planned
Bookmark and Share
Those who love to put on their walking boots and outdoor jackets for a hike up the highest peak in Wales may appreciate seeing less litter on the mountain after a clean-up takes place this week.

On Friday (October 7th) volunteers will take part in an exercise jointly run by the Snowdonia Society and Snowdon Mountain Railway to clear rubbish off popular footpaths, such as the Pyg Track and the Miner's Path.

It will be the second annual litter pick and last year saw over a hundred bags collected - something the organisers hope to top this time.

Conservation Snowdonia project officer Jenny Whitmore said many people drop litter "carelessly" when climbing mountains.

She stated: "Visitors come to our national park because it is wild and beautiful and we should endeavour to keep it that way."

One piece of "litter" blighting Snowdon has now been removed, after a 4x4 Vauxhall Frontera that has twice been illegally driven up the mountain was taken away by police this week.

A man has been arrested over the latest incident.
