Everyone can do their bit!
Put your litter in a bin.
If there happens to be no bin available, take your litter home.
Don’t throw litter from your vehicle. Use a car litter-bag or wait until you find a bin. Never empty car ash trays onto the ground.
Cigarette ends, matchsticks and chewing gum are small but they’re still litter, so is discarded food. Use the bin!
Protect our countryside and remote places from litter pollution. Materials like plastic, tin, aluminium take decades to decay.
Make sure household or business refuse is securely contained in a bin or bag, so that it doesn’t escape and become litter.
Everyone is responsible for their own waste – never dump it. Extra household rubbish can be taken to the Nuffield Household Waste and Recycling Centre free of charge.
The Council is working in partnership with Dorset Reclaim to collect large items such as furniture or beds.
If litter has built up and become an eyesore, report it to the Council cleaning service.
Keep your own garden or land litter free.
