A litter pick, organised by Asda, saw an area of countryside behind Beetons Way cleared of rubbish.

Volunteers from the supermarket were joined by Suffolk County Councillor Mark Ereira and recycling guru Karen Cannard who advised them on the best way to dispose of what they collected.

Store manager Simon Mueller said the supermarket organises a litter pick at least once a year and has strong connections with the community.

He said the event was fun as well as having a serious side.

Cllr Ereira said: “This is what makes Bury St Edmunds work and tick it’s that bringing together of communities and businesses and councillors - it makes a huge difference people caring about the environment on their doorsteps.”

The rubbish collected from the area included pizza boxes, cans, and a glass light fitting.
