Sunday morning rubbish ride. Manly Dam mountain bike trails overall were looking great. Disappointed to see the building waste that had blown from the site near the Engravings Trail (removed by a fellow rider 👍). These two bottles were picked up at the Nolans Reserve playing field.
Hi. My name is Liz and I find it almost impossible to throw out jars and bottles. To the point I can't close the cupboard. I've reused all I need, and kept some just in case. This box and more are free to a good home. They are not all the same. Some have labels. They won't Pinterestise your cupboard. Pickup Manly area.

Absolutely no idea what the soft toys are. They are clean and heading to @lifelinemanly
Empty perfume bottle will go in the recycling unless you know anyone that collects these?
@nintendo_australia Wii will go to ewaste.
@7elevenaus do you accept slurpee cups for recycling?

Two things stand out for me here. 1. I didn't see many bottles or cans on Vancouver streets. These are considered 'refundables' and in many places we walked in BC there were people walking around picking them up; and 2. In Australia there are regulations around marketing alcohol in ways that might be attractive to children/teens. 7% pink lemonade anyone.
Litter on Whistler streets and trails was almost non existent (from my limited observation). Quite possibly due to the bear population. What if we imported black bears to Australia as a behaviour change incentive? Hey, imports have worked really well in Australia. Think cane toads ...
I've read positive stories of @timhortons giving back to their local communities. Such a shame to see their cups littered so close to salmon habitat when they sell reusable alternatives.
