 There are a number of ways you could help protect Poole's environment at home:

  • Recycle for Poole - help reduce waste being sent to landfill sites by taking part in the Blue bin recycling scheme.
  • Compost at Home - up to 30% of household rubbish is organic and suitable for composting. By taking this out of the bin and not landfilling it we are helping to protect the environment.
  • Join/ Orgainise a Tidy Up - we are able to provide volunteers who organise litter picks with gloves, litter pickers, bags, etc. We can also arrange to collect the waste after the litter pick (providing this has taken place on Council land).
  • Join the Street Watchers Scheme - this is a scheme that was launched in February 2008 and encourages residents within the Borough to take part in community events, litter-picks, and reporting environmental issues (such as graffiti removal, dog fouling, fly posting etc) for us to deal with.

For more information on any of the above please contact us.
