Shaftesbury Volunteers Clear Roadside Litter That Dorset Council Hasn’t Removed

The Hilltop Litter Picker volunteers have stepped in to clear roadside litter around the town.

Last week Dorset Council told us they had been removing litter from roadsides. But most of their clearance areas are in the south of the county and they didn’t respond when we asked what they were doing to remove litter from Shaftesbury’s verges.

Luckily, the Hilltop Litter Pickers have been in action. Organiser Ty Crook tells us where the volunteers have collected rubbish. Ty reveals how much has been collected and tells us about the routes that only Dorset Council can clear. He says littering and fly-tipping has increased during the lockdown.
