Canal Clean in Birchills with WASUP

Walsall has a network of canals – most badly polluted. I have picked out plastic and other litter from the canal in Birchills. Canals used to be very picturesque with many visitors and fishermen.

Now, this has been seriously affected by the filth that has built up with a resultant change in the eco-systems in and around the water. Presently canal-sides attract unsocial behaviour – we found condoms, syringes and needles. If canals are cleaned regularly more people will come to relax and enjoy the ambience, as happened many years ago with improvement in both mental/physical health and decreased antisocial behaviour.
