Timber - dumped in the bushes

Reported in the Flytipping category by Gareth GEE at 22:16, Sun 27 March 2016

Sent to Broxtowe Borough Council 4 minutes later

Building waste - large pieces of timber - have now been dumped in the bushes by the walkway connecting Ireland Ave to Cartwright Way. It's been there at least 2 days. The rubbish in this spot (now under the timber, presumably) has twice been reported recently but has not been cleared.

  • This report has (as is typical) been completely ignored by Broxtowe Borough Council, ditto the long phone call I made to their customer service staff a few days after my intitial report. This is because it is a Tory council, and problems in places were working class people live are routinely kicked into the long grass, especially litter, graffiti, and fly-tipping. Posh areas are however maintained to the highest standards, with OUR money!

  • Broxtowe Councl has so far ignored FIVE different reports of this fy-tipping, including two lengthy phone calls, this web report, and two reports made on their own webform. I made another report today, including photos of the steadily growing pile of rubbish taken on three different days over the last month or so. It would have been easier for me to hire a skip and remove it myself. COMPLETELY USELESS.

  • This took forever, most of my reports were completely ignored by Broxtowe Council. Action was taken only after I threatened to make an official complaint. They are lazy and useless. The location has already attracted litter again which will not be cleared until someone (me?) reports it, even though the council have been asked dozens of times to add this spot to the cleansing rota. TOTALLY USELESS COUNCIL.
