Following the festive period, we have noticed an increase in waste that has been left in our communal bin areas due to fly-tipping
Fly-tipping is an eyesore for our customers and it’s also a criminal offence to dump waste next to a bin, on a street corner, in an alleyway or on a grass verge.
Where there’s fly-tipping in communal areas, it increases the risk of attracting pests such as rats, mice and ants which could then spread to people’s homes.
Fly-tipping commonly includes:
- Black bin bags
- Items of furniture
- DIY material
Keeping communal areas free from fly-tipping, plays a big part in improving the safety of residents as well as creating a pleasant living environment.
Please dispose of waste in the correct bins or take your unwanted items such as Christmas trees or packaging to your nearest recycling centre. Any excess rubbish will not be collected by your local Council.
Our top tips for waste removal:
Sell it online
Donate it to charity
Charities are always on the lookout for second-hand items in decent condition like clothes, toys and furniture.
You can take your unwanted items to your nearest recycling centre. Most are open from 8am and over weekends.
Contact your local council
Councils will offer a disposal service for large and bulky items for a fee. They will collect white goods and furniture from your door.
