Stroud District Council asks residents not to light bonfires

Stroud District Council is continuing to receive reports of  bonfires being lit across the District.

Please do not set fire to your waste.

Many people are currently self-isolating at their homes and cannot escape the smoke produced by these fires. Some will already be struggling with respiratory symptoms. Please do not make things worse for them.

Please store your waste for now, pending the recommencement of green waste collections and the re-opening of Waste Recycling Centres.

Please do your bit to help the situation and do not burn waste.
