Dorset Council Encouraging Us To Keep Roadside Verges Litter-Free

Dorset Council is arranging removal of rubbish scattered along roadside verges.

The council is planning to put up temporary ‘love your verge’ signs to, ‘celebrate local habitat and the biodiversity across Dorset and encourage residents and visitors to value verges’.

Cllr Derek Beer

Shaftesbury’s Dorset councillor Derek Beer tells Alfred he’s frustrated by litter, but Dorset Council can’t be expected to remove it more frequently. “There’s so much money needed for social care and other really important things,” says Derek.
