Dominique Di Santo, 30, is a swimming teacher from Dumbarton.
He started volunteering with Friends of Dumbarton Foreshore during lockdown and is a regular on their local litter picks.
“I was doing litter picks by myself and putting photos up on Facebook to show how much I was collecting.
“Friends of Dumbarton Foreshore contacted me to ask if I would like to get involved in their litter picks.
“I do it because of the plastic in the water plus it’s my local area and I don’t like to see all the litter and waste lying around.
“It is an ongoing battle though – you clear it away one week and it’s back again the next, so the more people who can get involved the easier it is.
“Working as part of a group is good, it inspires me because there are more of us going out to clean up our community.
“We usually meet as a big group and then go our own ways.
“I just listen to my music, give myself a goal to clear a certain area and then get stuck into it.
“You find a lot of paracetamols and pill packets and my biggest headache is the cotton buds.”
