The big tidy-up was part of the college’s Community Week and saw three bags of rubbish cleared from the popular cycle way.

Island Roads, which is forging close links with the college, supplied hi-vis jackets and litter pickers and also collected and took away all the rubbish collected.

Dave Wallis, Environmental Manager from Island Roads, said:

“We were delighted to support this effort by students the result of which was a great deal of rubbish being taken away and the cycle track looking very much tidier.”

Richard Rice, 6th Form Tutor from the IW College said:

“The students felt that, with the help of Island Roads, they were able to bring about a real improvement to what is a very well used green transport route.”
