Marine and beach litter is an environmental, social and economic issue for the Dorset and East Devon coastline with implications on the marine environment, industry and on coastal communities.

The litter found on our beaches an in our marine environment comes from lots of difference sources including litter that has been:

  • Deliberately discarded into seas, rivers or on beaches (such as litter and beach BBQ's left by beach visitors)
  • Brought into the sea indirectly with rivers, sewage, storm water or wind
  • Accidentally lost, including material lost at sea in bad weather (such as fishing gear or ships cargo)
