Power hour for Litter Pickers

Huge thanks to the amazing team of people who litter picked last evening! What an incredibly disgusting amount of rubbish we found! 🤢
Cans and bottles were found tucked in bushes and dumped on the river bank and in the water! Old clothes, takeaway food packaging and sweet wrappers were found in all sorts of places! 😝
And, as usual, the most numerous item was cigarette butts, so please do get in touch if you or your staff/friends/colleagues would like a free stub tidy pack, we have lots to give away! 

Community Litter Pick

Join Wimborne War on Waste's Community Litter Pick, starting at the Fair Ground Shop, in the Cornmarket and finishing at Hanham Road car park. 

Litter picking kit can be provided.   Please email wimbornewaronwaste@gmail.com.

Queen's Platinum Jubilee


When Elizabeth was first crowned there were street parties up and down the country. People brought out their
tables and chairs, their best tablecloths and china and celebrated in style.

Together we can keep Britain great by doing the same. Let's say no to all those disposable cups, plates, cutlery, glasses, bunting, balloons and tablecloths that end up as landfill. Instead, let's dust off our pretty china, tablecloths and
homemade bunting and make it a really special occasion.

Plastic Free Wimborne

Plastic Free Wimborne - Surfers Against Sewage

What do we mean by Plastic Free?

The banner 'Plastic Free' can be puzzling, even misleading, how can we ever be Plastic Free?

The concept of the Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) Plastic Free communities campaign centres on SINGLE USE plastic such as bottles, bags, coffee cups and straws.
