Our patch includes countryside and coast, heritage spots, great walks, parks for playing in and the most amazing beaches. There are more than 600 litter and dog poo bins across the Borough, yet, the council says some people don’t use them and there are still rubbish hotspots which can be simply avoided.

Our beaches are beautiful but as the weather warms up, litter on the waterfront becomes more of an issue. It’s an eyesore, spoiling the beach for everyone and making its way into the Solent where it harms the water and our wildlife.

Please, please always plop your pooch poo or your rubbish in a bin, or if it’s full take it home, don’t just leave it by the bin or chuck it in a hedge.

In 2020, 686 tonnes of waste were collected from our litter bins and through litter picking on streets, parks, seafronts and open spaces. That’s the same weight as 98 elephants or 381 cars!
