I was joined last Friday by Stuart McMillan MSP and Cllr Jim McEleny as we undertook a clean up of Murdieston Dam.
It was obviously disappointing to find such a significant amount of litter in the area, including broken glass, polystyrene takeaway boxes and plastic cutlery. We also found plastic bread bags that had been left behind by people feeding the animals.
Larger items had also been dumped in the park, such as TVs, garden equipment and antennas.
While most people enjoy the park respectfully, I’d ask that those who are littering consider their actions, particularly as the park is used by small children.
