This Summer Litter Free Dorset have developed the ‘Don’t Be A Tos53r’ campaign to target visitors that may choose to leave their rubbish behind in Dorset.
As lockdown restrictions where eased in June littering behaviour has increased dramatically. As people’s habits are moving to ‘take away’ options disposable packaging is on the rise and risks polluting our beautiful county if people choose to act irresponsibly. Many people are choosing to have staycations and consequently we have an increased number of visitors coming to Dorset.
The increase in litter is putting additional strain on council services to manage increased litter and waste.
Litter Free Dorset will be installing posters in Dorset Council car parks and larger signs in areas which experience high footfall during the Summer holidays. Litter Free Dorset are asking people to simply put their rubbish in the bin or if its full take it home with them.
