Two lots of flytipping

Once upon a time the council picked up bulk waste every Tues morning, regular as clockwork from Haldane St. This worked well. Then you stopped it. You stopped without informing anyone. The residents kept putting their stuff out, now in your eyes fly tipping. You didn’t send education / warning letters at the time, nor did you re-fresh the instructional notices in any close, as you promised you would following multiple requests.

After which, and during lock down, there was a cease fire. For ages Haldane St went from one of the worst flytipping streets in the area to one of the best. However, with the introduction of that £35 charge, a few residents are clearly now not willng (or able) to pay.

Accordingly, please uplift the flytipped tv and black bag containing a child’s car seat. And expect more of same over winter. Thanks.

PS People move in and out tenements and other properties all the time. If you merely send a letter as a one-off, there will inevitably be gaps in info. Either get notices up in closes as you used to do, or include a letter with every, fresh council tax payer notice - cheap, simple. You could of course, as has been suggested but steadfastly ignored, also get ALL commercial estate agents to pass on a letter with details about recycling/flytipping every time someone buys/sells, rents out/rents a property. Or is that just too simple, sensible and logical for senior council officers to endorse?
