Council asked to take away large item but only took half of it

Reported via desktop in the Flytipping category anonymously at 23:31, Saturday 2 January 2021

Sent to Oxford City Council less than a minute later

Council failed to take away the object as described to the phone operator. I contacted the phone operator who called them directly, then I was told they would investigate and let me know later that day, Council failed to let me know later that day, Emailed council and Councillor about this and yet to receive a response from either, this occurred on 21st Dec, do they all have a fortnight holiday?

  • Will be dealt with under ref 101002767353. What is the object that is fly-tipped and where exactly is it?

  • The object is a printer stand specifically made to hold the printer that they took on 22nd Dec. It contains printer parts that were disassembled to make removal easier. The printer is useless without these parts. Call centre was informed about this stand and they decided it would have to be deemed as 2 large objects which is my yearly allowance, I agreed to this even though technically it is one object. The item is currently on my driveway, I have emailed the council and called the call centre numerous times and have been ignored, told that they would look into it and get back to me on 3 occasions but have yet to hear from them, I have chatted online and am also using this forum, nothing gets done, appalling service, yet council tax increases yearly.

  • Is this to do with Waste & Recycling Team's Bulky Waste collection service or is this fly-tipping you are reporting?

  • As you are probably aware, if you take an item of waste to the dump, it becomes the property of the council and you are not allowed to remove it from the premises. As the council agreed to remove the item, I am assuming that it is now their property and as I have not given them permission to leave it on my property it should qualify as fly tipping. I have tried contacting waste and recycling many times without success, this is another avenue to try to get this situation resolved.
