Wherever there are people, there is rubbish and where there is rubbish there are people cleaning up after us. Local councils spend a staggering £1bn a year keeping our streets clean. Whether it’s crisp packets, discarded copies of The Metro, cigarette butts or food wrapping, someone has to sweep up after us.
Often working away between crowds of people, being ignored by those around them are people picking up the litter that many casually toss aside without a thought. I have respect for the army of street cleaners that spend their days sweeping and cleaning our streets to help them look tidy.
