Who are the Dorset Devils?

We are residents of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch and beyond who love where they live and dislike the sight of litter and its effects on our community and environment, especially it’s wildlife and marine life.

Our group is all about individual and family litter picks within our own patch whenever we feel like it and when we have the time-ten minutes or two hours- each volunteer decides. As we do this individually we are not tied to any planned start time which is usually the case with organised group picks. We aim to be visible in the community in the hope our presence will encourage others to manage their own litter.

Team DD carry out various activities through the year and link up with other groups and organisations such as ‘Litter Free Dorset-Land, Coast & Sea‘, ‘BCP Council‘, ‘Bournemouth University‘, ‘Sobo Wastebusters‘. ‘Bournemouth in Bloom‘ and ‘The Healthcare Team‘. We also take part in the ‘Great British Spring Cleans‘ and ‘Great Dorset Beach Cleans‘.

Why do they do it?

Y DROP LITTER? – it begs the question.

Really, why do people drop litter?

They drop litter by the roadside, in our parks, on our beaches. They push them into bushes, hedgerows and over cliff fencing as though they are 21st Century bins-they are not! Why do they do it? Don’t they care? Well we do.

We will do what we can in our communities and maybe prick a few consciences at the same time. We know we can’t stop the litter drop nor are we the litter police. We just hope people will stop and think and either look for a bin or take it home with them.

No one has the right to litter. It’s that simple.

We’re making a difference
