What to do if you spot...dumped rubbish

We know that most of our residents take pride in their homes and their communities. So it can be extremely frustrating to find bulky rubbish dumped in communal areas or elsewhere on your estate.

If someone dumps rubbish in our neighbourhoods, we'll do our utmost to find out who put it there.  Examples include sofas, fridges, bags of household junk, carpets, cardboard boxes and mattresses left by the side of the bins or road.  We'll charge the disposal costs to the cuplrit, but if we don't have a name, we'll add the cost to the service charge for the block or neighbourhood.

It’s an offence to fly-tip on open land or the public highway. So if you spot anyone fly-tipping on your estate, report it to us immediately on 01462 683307. Alternatively, you can report it direct to your local council, which has a duty to deal with it. You’ll need to give details of when and where it happened and, if you can, the name of the offender and the registration number of their car.
