"Don't be a tosser" urge borough council chiefs

“DON’T be a tosser” is the very direct message from Rugby Borough Council.

It follows a increase in littering in Rugby’s parks and open spaces and has led to a new poster campaign.

Earlier this month RBC highlighted staff were collecting an extra ten tonnes of litter and human waste from parks and open spaces every day.

Borough environment spokesman Coun Howard Roberts said: “After we demonstrated just how much litter we were collecting, a number of residents asked us to consider using a campaign that has been used in New Zealand and elsewhere in the UK.




“We’re happy to oblige.

“The vast majority of our residents put their rubbish in a bin, or where that’s not possible they take it home.


“This campaign is aimed at telling the litter tossers just what the rest of us think: there are no excuses so take it home.”

The posters will be put up in local parks and open spaces by community champions and council staff over the next few weeks, and will also feature on social media.

“Don’t be a tosser” is the message in Rugby Borough Council’s anti-litter poster campaign.
