Recycling & Rubbish Bins – Jumping the Gun
Please resist the temptation to “put the bins out early” until at least late afternoon on the day before collection. There have been several instances of late when bins have been left out days in advance cluttering up the village. Very often these early bins emanate from holiday lets and rental properties. Owners of these businesses are reminded that this recycling and rubbish must be removed by a commercial waste contractor. Failure to do so may leave the business owner liable to prosecution by the local authority if they are found to be using the domestic waste collection.
Spot It – Report It
Potholes, poor drainage, flooding, dangerous trees, overgrown vegetation, damaged signs – you name it, we probably have it somewhere in the village. If you come across such problems, don't wait for someone else to report it – please report it direct to Dorset Council here: https://www.dorsetforyou.com/travel-dorset/contact-dorset-highways
