Say no to litter


International_tidymanLitter has become expensive problem Dorset, particuarly on our roads. Recent work clearing  a five mile stretch of the A338 Spur Road turned up nearly two tonnes of rubbish and cost the Dorset Waste Partnership around £10,000.

Dorset is not alone with this problem. It costs local authorities in England £885 million per year to clear up litter left on our streets The top three types of litter in the UK are smokers materials , confectionary packaging and fizzy drink bottles.

Here are a few ways you can say no to litter:

  • Bin it – make sure you don’t add to the problem and take responsibility for your rubbish
  • Report it – join the Keep Britain Tidy campaign against car littering and shame those droping rubbish on our highways
  • Love Where You Live – and get involved in keeping your community litter free
  • And finally join The Big Tidy Up and help however you can
