Littering and misuse of the bin store was becoming a real issue for residents in one of our estates in Dorset. 

We worked with residents to install a gate to limit access to the bin store to deter fly tipping. We also painted a strip of yellow hatching between the bin stores to discourage parking and allow rubbish to be collected. We hope this work will make a real difference to residents. 

If you’d like to be involved in making changes like these in your community why not join your local neighbourhood officer on their next estate visit or volunteer for one of our customer groups.
