Town Council Carved badge smWhitchurch Cemetery

Show some respect.

From Whitchurch Town Council:

People visiting graves at the cemetery have been littering.
Some people throw their rubbish (plastic bags, oasis, non-degradable waste) into the soil bay. The soil bay is only for the soil removed from the ground to allow bodies to be buried and degradable waste. Throwing rubbish in this space is disrespectful.

It also costs the people of Whitchurch £1000 each year to dispose of it.
This is 10% of the budget for maintaining the whole of the cemetery.

Please put non-degradable rubbish in the bins provided.
Only soil or plant waste which will degrade should go in the soil bay.
