Glynllifon Animal Care students collect rubbish as part of their work to reduce waste

Students on the Animal Care course at Coleg Glynllifon have recently been collecting litter from Dinas Dinlle beach, as part of a project to improve the college's green credentials.

Thirty students were busy collecting rubbish left behind, or washed up on the popular beach, about 2 miles from Coleg Glynllifon’s campus.

Litter pickers and bags were loaned from Keep Wales Tidy, as well as practical help on how to deal with the waste safely.

Kate Jones, Course coordinator on the Animal Care Course in Glynllifon said:

"We had a range of different items, from a football, a sock, to small pieces of fish net, drinks cans, drinking straws, bottles and small pieces of plastic. Anna, the tutor's favourite item was a road sign washed up on the beach. It is extremely important that our students have this kind of opportunity to see the impact of waste on our environment.”

She added:

"Thanks to Daniel Griffith of Keep Wales Tidy for the equipment, and all the practical help, we hope to be able to work with them again soon"
