'Don't Be A Waster - Reduce, Reuse, Respect'

The Town Council supports the Don’t be a Waster campaign, lead by Ryedale District Council, focussing on litter in the district.










The Don't be a Waster - Reduce, Reuse Respect campaign is turning its attention to the theme of reuse in May. 





The Don't be a Waster - Reduce, Reuse Respect campaign is now focussing on the issue of dog fouling.

This is a community initiative to focus attention on the issue, how to report it and how we can work together to tackle it.

There are three ways to get involved:

Green Dog Walker Scheme

Join the Green Dog Walkers Scheme. Dog owners are encouraged to be village and town wardens and join the campaign by attaching a bright green ribbon to their dog lead. This identifies them as a dog walker with spare poo bags - and they'll also report any dog walkers who don't pick up after their dog to Kirkbymoorside’s Community Officer, Jane Kitching at Ryedale District Council Tel: 01653 600666 Ext: 353

This campaign has proved popular in other parts of North Yorkshire, in part because many dog walkers like to be positively identified as being responsible and as someone who always picks up after their pet.

There are also new bin stickers that have been added to existing bins reminding dog owners that bagged poo can go in regular waste bins as well as the dedicated dog poo bins.

If there is an area near to you where fouling is an issue please contact the Town Clerk on 01751 432217 and you will be provided with Glow in the dark stickers!


November is all about what's in your bin. So we're sharing information on our website and social media channels about what goes in your bins, what waste is collected and where your waste goes.

We'll be reminding residents about the different ways to reduce their waste and avoid sending waste to landfill - from composting and using up food leftovers, to recycling unwanted furniture and repairing electrical equipment. Ryedale is lucky enough to have many active community groups that encourage reuse and recycling so we'll be promoting many of these during the month.

We've produced a special A-Z of waste disposal tips too - which starts with asbestos and goes right through to zebras*.

*We're not disposing of zebras but we have managed to link them to a way to reduce your waste, but you'll need to wait until 30 November to find out more.


The #1PieceofRubbish initiative asks residents to pick up one piece of rubbish and put it in the bin. And if they share pictures of them doing so – via social media or email – they will have a chance of winning a great range of prizes.

All residents need to do is share on Twitter @ryedaledc, via the RyedaleDC Facebook page or by emailing it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Ryedale District Council Dont Be A Waster - 1 Piece of Rubbish poster

The September focus on litter is part of an ambitious year long project to tackle issues we know are important to residents – such as fly tipping, waste, dog fouling, recycling and litter – to clean up our district.

"We all like to see clean streets in our villages and towns and get frustrated by people who litter. #1pieceofrubbish encourages us to take responsibility and is one small step we can take to improve our communities for everyone,”

said Councillor Luke Ives, Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee.

The 1 piece of rubbish challenge started as a people’s initiative in France, supporting the idea that we’re all capable of picking up 1 piece of rubbish per day – for cleaner streets, communities and cleaner future. The results have been clear – 3,475 Instagram pictures, 12,031 Facebook, Twitter and Instagram fans and 32,483 kg of rubbish.

Cllr Ives added: "If we all picked up one piece of rubbish a day we could make a huge difference. Littering is completely unacceptable and we want to inspire everyone to make where they live, work and play somewhere they are proud of.

It’s about making a difference ourselves and everyone taking responsibility and working together to make where we live a better place, whether as individuals, groups or companies.”
