Vehicles on bridleway; Fly Tipping

There has been a massive increase in numbers of visitors to the Ford (no doubt Covid has played its part, but so have the housing developments in Southmoor, which has hugely increased the local population), and with no signs or facilities for rubbish collection and removal, the 8 households in Duxford are responsible for collection and disposal of enormous amounts of debris every morning. Can anything be done to provide litter collection? Currently I would estimate that around 150 people are at the Ford at any given time but obviously visitors come and go, so the total number over the course of the day will be nearer 1000. Many leave their litter. Many take it with them. If it is rubbish collection day, however, they dump it in our collection bins, which means the council has refused to collect our recycling due to overfilled bins etc. On any given morning the residents collect around 4 bags of rubbish (some images attached). In addition to the litter, we are also dealing with late night parties and motorbikes speeding up and down the bridleway (a neighbour reported this to the police, incident number URN 636 30/05/20) as there is no signage prohibiting vehicle access. We also daily have to request people not to park outside our gate. Is there a way to get a sign erected reminding visitors that they cannot drive on the bridleway (or obstruct access to the farmer's fields, for that matter).
