Dorset Reclaim is helping with a series of road shows across the county where Dorset Waste Partnership officers are talking to local people about what they can do to help report or stop fly-tipping activity. The campaign is being widely promoted in the local press, on radio and across social media.
We are helping the “Tip Off” campaign by providing each road show site with examples of items that are found dumped to highlight the problem faced every day by Dorset; the main difference obviously being that we come back at the end of the day to collect the rubbish
Speaking for Dorset Reclaim, Steve James said;
“The pile of unwanted furniture and household items causes quite an impact when we “dump” it in a busy area, so this is a great way of highlighting a problem and to inform local people of what they can do. It is a natural partnership for us as we deliver the bulky household reuse and recycling service for Dorset.”
Dorset has recently expanded their Enforcement Team and is investigating more fly-tipping incidents than ever before; it costs over £150,000 each year to deal with.
If you have items to dispose of, take them to your nearest council site or to see if we can help, visit www.dorsetreclaim.org.uk or call 01202 679350
