Delayed Dorset Council Bin Collection Creates ‘Stench’ Across Motcombe

Parish councillors have been discussing a ‘stench’ across Motcombe, caused by delays to Dorset Council’s collection of garden waste.

Dorset Council’s waste team is impacted by the national HGV driver shortage. Litter bins are full and they are not a Dorset Council priority currently.

Cllr Mouncey first noticed the stench near Elm Close.

Should locals be asked to take litter home? Last night’s meeting heard about an unexpected item found in village litter bins that should not be there.
