Persistent Fly tipping hot spot

Reported via desktop in the Flytipping category anonymously at 09:58, Thu 20 January 2022

Sent to Oxford City Council less than a minute later


I work for a large charity shop called Emmaus Oxford at 242 Barns Rd Cowley OX4 3RQ, 01865 763698. We've been operating from these premises since 2016. Despite very clear signage that states leaving items outside our operating hours is fly tipping, we've had persistent problems with fly tipping on the road/pavement to the rear of the store. This is the service road off Barns rd, that serves Wolseley House Council Garages, and the bins for ourselves, some of Wolseley House and the rear of some adjacent properties. We were recently warned by one the council collection teams that we may face legal action if this continues. This seems unlikely as it is council land where the tipping is taking place and we are doing what we can in terms of signs and reporting. As will be stated in council records, the council are removing tipped rubbish multiple times throughout the year. We would appreciate your assistance tackling this ongoing issue in the form of official signs that prohibit fly tipping in this area by law and clearly state the consequences for doing so.

Kind Regards

Emmaus Oxford (Mark)

P.S - I first made contact with Oliver at Oxford City Council customer service, who confirmed this is Council land and passed me to the Highways Team, where I spoke to Iona, who also confirmed this is council land and advised me to contact you.
