Visitors told "take your rubbish home"

Visitors to Brightlingsea are being told to take their rubbish home with them after an increase in littering during the recent warm weather.

According to Tendring District Council (TDC), much more rubbish than usual was left on the district's beaches and seafronts as visitors flocked to the coast to soak up the sun.

The council has already deployed its seasonal seafront cleaning regime, with 130 extra bins put out along the coastline and contractors carrying out regular emptying and tidying. Beach patrols also carry out litter picks as part of their duties, but cannot cover the whole coastline and must prioritise safety tasks.

Alex Porter, TDC's cabinet member for Leisure and Tourism, said everyone had to play their part. “We put significant additional resources in every year to counter this problem, but ultimately responsibility lies with people, whether you live locally or come to visit our beautiful district.”

He added: “If a bin is full use another one or take your rubbish home with you. Please don’t place rubbish next to bins, as however neatly you leave it, it will get spread around by the wind or wildlife."
