North End residents warned against fly-tipping
Letters have once again been sent to residents in North End to warn them to take responsibility for disposing of their waste properly.
Nearly 500 properties in the area will receive a letter advising them t put their waste out on the right day and at the front of their property ready for bin collection day.
Cllr Stuart Dark, cabinet member for Environmental Services and Public Protection, said: “It’s disappointing that people continue fly-tipping their rubbish in the alleyways in the area. These alleyways are private land and waste will not be collected from them.
“It’s really uncaring, antisocial behaviour that undermines the vast majority of local residents who want to live, work and move in and around a clean environment. Especially given the facilities and services available to dispose of refuse cheaply and easily.
“The borough council will investigate and prosecute cases of fly-tipping.”
The letters follow previous action in the area which led to a reduction of waste being left in alleyways, signage in the area has also been updated. The letters will also provide residents with details about when bagged waste collections will occur in their street.
Streets ithat will be receiving letters include North End Yard and Fishermans Walk, Loke Road, Birchwood Street, Rope Walk, Walker Street, Sir Lewis Street, Cresswell Street, Burkitt Street, Lansdowne Street and George Street.
