The Dorset Waste Partnership includes all seven Dorset councils except Bournemouth and Poole. We provide waste collection and disposal, street cleansing and recycling centres for residents living in this area. Recycling supports sustainability by diverting rubbish from landfill and reducing the amount of virgin materials being extracted for manufacturing new products. We also promote reduction and reuse of materials, which we ask residents to consider before recycling as these activities have even less of an impact on the environment.
TerraCycle’s purpose is to eliminate the idea of waste. We do this by creating national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable waste streams.
With over 21 million people collecting waste in 16 countries together we have diverted over 2.5 billion of pieces of waste that are either upcycled or recycled into various new products.
Verwoodians on Waste rely on Terracycle to enable us to facilitate our recycling schemes.

Litter Free Dorset is made up of a group of local organisations, charities and community groups. They all work together to reduce the social, economic and environmental impacts of litter.
This is done by trying to stop littering behaviour in the first place through projects and campaigns. We also work together with litter picking groups to help coordinate regular clean ups. All supporters want a Litter Free Dorset that acts in ways that help to achieve this and encourage other people to do so too.
