Recently, members of Sandbach Clean Team organized a special litter pick at Junction 17 of the M6. Working from behind the barriers, volunteers picked up the all the litter, cartons, bottles and cans thrown by drivers as they queue on the slip roads to leave the motorway. In just two hours, the team of four Clean Team members (Claire Howarth, Keith Matthews, Keith and Jenny Haines), aided by public-spirited volunteer helper Phil Tipton, filled twenty one large sacks of litter, which they arranged to be picked up by the Cheshire East waste team. Clean Team chairman and organizer Cllr. Keith Haines was delighted with the result, and commented that the motorway exits were an important gateway to Sandbach, so it was particularly important to tackle the grot spots of the slip roads.
