Public Litter Bins – Misuse

Some public litter bins around Shaftesbury Town have been misused by irresponsible ‘persons unknown’ filling them up with household/domestic waste.

Unfortunately we do not have the resources to continually empty bins of household/domestic waste.

Following ongoing monitoring of the bin and the failure of the public to comply with our notices we have taken the difficult decision (on a temporary basis) to remove the ones at Boyne Mead, Wincombe recreation ground and the Library.

We do not want to remove any others public bins, however this may become necessary if the facility is continually misused.

Please, wherever possible, take your litter home.
