Compare these two photographs taken today. The one below is of yet more illegal fly-tipping in Denton and the one above, also taken in Denton, is of Brian, a true local hero who come rain, hail or shine is to be found in the woods clearing up rubbish, unblocking drains and generally keeping the place nice for those who care about the woodland environment. He does all this without any kind of financial reward and it is worth adding that Brian is 81 years of age. Well done Brian - you are a true local hero!
Now think of the contrast when you look at the picture below and you think of the people responsible for this illegal tipping. I was thinking to myself of the thought process that leads to such actions. Here is one scenario: Eh up love, the new carpet and sofa is coming tomorrow,but what are we going to do with the ones we already have?We will have to chuck them out,where? In the street or the park where we usually dump rubbish of course.
