The volunteers managed to collect six bags of rubbish from the summit, including from the summit shelter, and a further five on the way down despite the mixed weather. The JMT will undertake a number of work parties on the Ben throughout the year, but the organisation is keen to educate walkers that banana skins and apple cores are not natural to the environment on the mountain and are regarded as litter. It is an offence to drop litter in Scotland. The JMT also hopes that publicising the litter picks will encourage walkers and climbers not to leave behind any litter including human waste which is also a problem at the summit area. Previous such clean ups have uncovered a piano and a wheelchair both thought to have been carried to the top as part of stunts and then left there.
