Waldringfield is a lovely place to visit and live, so lets keep it that way.

Please take your litter home with you or use the bins provided.

If you are crabbing from the beach please remember to take all your tackle home with you and please remove hooks from purchased fishing lines (Crabs don't need hooks) as they are a danger to other animals especially dogs.

  • Take enough bags with you for picking up
  • Use the Dog Bins provided, litter Bins are close to seating.
  • Remind any other dog owner to pick up if they forget to do so.
  • Offer a bag to someone who has forgotten to bring one.
