Sedgemoor District Council will be putting up some new signs across the district over the next week, urging people to put their rubbish into the bins provided, or better still – take it home with them.  The signs have been designed to point out that it is not hard to put rubbish in the bin, rather than on the ground.

Following the recent good weather and relaxation of some Covid19 regulations, many more people are out and about, not only at Sedgemoor’s resorts but in countryside beauty spots; there has been a corresponding increase in the amount of litter just left on the ground.

Sedgemoor’s Clean Surroundings staff are at full stretch – preparing the 50+ children’s play areas for re-opening at the weekend, emptying litter bins and dog bins, cleaning public loos, grass cutting and all the other daily tasks that they carry out – so any help in keeping littering down is well received.
