Keep Dorset Litter Free

Litter picking is a great way to get some extra ‘feel good factor’ whilst taking your daily exercise.

Litter doesn’t only look unsightly but can injure animals and pollute our waterways. Lots of individuals and community groups litter pick to look after their local park across Dorset, some even do it whilst walking the dog, catching up with a friend or even at the same time!

More about ‘Litter Free Dorset’

Litter Free Dorset is a community campaign to reduce litter across Dorset. Litter Free Dorset is made up of a group of local organisations, charities and community groups. They all work together to reduce the social, economic and environmental impacts of litter. This is done by trying to stop littering behaviour in the first place and through clean ups.
