A motorbike was fished from the town moat during a council clean up.
Offenders from Active Citizenship Together (ACT) Swale spent two hours clearing up the water between Sheerness Docks and the sea wall last week.
Although the land is not owned by Swale council, it teamed up with ACT to get something done after complaints about dumped rubbish.
Last month we reported how Sheerness resident Steven Askew thought some of the garbage had been there for 20 years.
ACT is a scheme run by Swale’s Community Safety Partnership which sees low-risk offenders from HMP Standford Hill carry out voluntary, unpaid community work.
They cleared the water and the surrounding banks of litter.
Along with the general litter, a rusty trolley and a motorbike were recovered.
Cllr David Simmons, Swale council’s portfolio holder for the environment, said: “A lot of hard work and effort went into the clearing up of the litter in the moat to try and get it to a better standard.
“We are striving to have a cleaner and greener Swale, and this was clearly a problem area for litter which needed clearing.”
