Junk taken from the River Severn. HFF everyone.

Junk taken from the River Severn.  HFF everyone.
Several times this year we have seen junk removed from the river. It gets taken away from the river walkway after a couple of days. Once we cane across a rusting motor scooter along with a couple of push bikes. This is the first time we have spotted a supermarket trolley. The dredging keeps the river safe for all the water sports that have been prevalent this year especially, and that includes river swimming.

Yes, it's astonishing what one can find in rivers through cities!

It's a mentality I just can't understand, just like today where people are pitching camp in local beauty spots without paying to stay in authorised campsites. after a few days they just go home leaving everything behind including tents, rubbish and their own waste. It's a good HFF highlighting the bad habits of modern society Amelia, trust you will have a great weekend.

It is sad to see this Amelia. It happens here too. It used to be even worse with shopping trolleys thrown into the local canal frequently but it is not quite as bad now that supermarkets have £1 coin slots in them. Losing their money still doesn't bother some though!

Well documented. HFF and have a good weekend

A sad commentary, though dumping seems to be a worldwide issue. Apart from that, a beautifully composed main image with lovely reflections. HFF, stay safe and have a great weekend, Amelia.

It's disappointing to see how certain people are messy and soiled. But as long as they don't find a car with a dead person inside (as it was the case here a few years ago), it may be ok!!! HFF Amelia.

Looks like those items have been there a long time Amelia! Magnet fishing seems to be the latest "thing". They have come up with some very old and usual items in the River Thames! A very good and interesting series. I hope you had a good time away. HFF and wish you a good weekend.

Hello Amelia an interesting array of things dredged out into daylight again .. the old Yamaha v50 scooter from around the 1980's needs a bit of restoring now though

Best wishes ... Steve

I put people who throw things into rivers, etc in the same category as non mask-wearers; the lowest of the low, who should have been throttled at birth and therefore done us all a favour.
My very moderate opinion!

There used to be a group on Flickr for abandonned trollies. I contributed quite a few as Newhaven harbour seems to be particularly blighted by them.
Once you start recording them you spot them all over the place. One was beside a roundabout in the middle of nowhere.

An interesting and well taken series Amela. I sometimes despair of the human race, we seem determined to destroy our planet :-(

A slightly belated HFF to you and I hope you're enjoying the weekend.

Quite a lot a hardware! Sometimes I wish I had a river nearby to throw all the bikes in that people leave lying in the middle of the pavement;-)
