Dumped rubbish, including an old cooker now blocking access to cars. several piles have emerged over the past few months. i usually use the entry for my car so i can get to my garage, my car has been off the road since december but i went out into the entry today & was shocked by the build up of junk from fly tippers it's the worst i've seen it in the 15 years i've lived here, somethings got to be done as it's unfair for residents & kids have been known to set things on fire in the entry so its a general health hazard besides being unsightly.

  • The dumplin of rubbish down the alley behind Kirkdale Avenue & Selworthy Road is getting increasingly worse. I have spoken to some of my neighbours, the rubbish being dumped here is not by the residents but by Fly Tippers who drive up in a car or van & chuck it out the back as quickly as possible, then drive off. These people can't be bothered to use the local tip so choose to ruin the area for everyone. This is becoming a real safety hazard as well as being unsightly & quite depressing. I use the alley for my car as I keep it in the garage. There are so many people who can't do that, I choose to help keep the street clear for people who need the space more than me. I have however had to stop & get out my car to move items so I can gain either access to my garage or one of the two exits.
