Did you know that fly-tipping has been reported over one million times in the last couple of years alone?

Every year – in fact, every day – piles of rubbish are dumped throughout the UK by thoughtless parties who pay no heed to the environment or the cost incurred to local authorities tasked with the responsibility of clearing up the mess that this act causes.

Spedian and Roadvert | Supporting Plastic Free Day Wednesday 8th May 2019


Spedian and Roadvert | Supporting Plastic Free Day Wednesday 8th May 2019

Spedian and Roadvert are supporting ‘Plastic Free Day’ 2019 in a bid to do our bit – yes, we CAN all make a difference!

Inspired by David Attenborough’s 2017 Blue Planet 2 on the BBC, which brought home just some of the harsh realities of what we are doing to our planet, ‘Plastic Free Day’ was set up in 2018 by Alex Rhodes of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.

By making some conscious choices in our everyday lives, we can help to minimise waste, preventing it from ending up in the countryside, sea and in some cases, even our food. #PlasticFreeDay aims to raise awareness of how huge the problem of disposable plastic is, re-educating everyone by sharing a common goal to go ‘plastic free’ for 24 hours.

Can YOU rise to the challenge? Share this feature on social media and take a look at the checklist of useful ways to stop using disposable plastic today…

An anti-littering campaign that urges people ‘Don’t be a Tos53r’ is being promoted around Dorset on the sides of vans that deliver wheelie bins and remove fly-tipped waste.

The striking message warning motorists they face a fine of up to £100 if anyone in their vehicle throws rubbish out of a window is being seen by thousands of people.

The national campaign, launched by Keep Britain Tidy and run by Litter Free Dorset, is being displayed on Luton vans belonging to the Dorset Waste Partnership. The three vans are based in Weymouth, Shaftesbury and Dorchester but travel around the county...
