Rubbish and waste


As well as being unsightly, accumulations of waste and rubbish on private land can lead to other types of nuisance such as smells and infestations.

If you have a problem with rubbish and waste:

  1. Try to solve the problem informally, by talking to the other party
  2. You could speak to us, and we may be able to help if talking to your neighbour doesn't work
  3. If the problem persists, it may be an antisocial behaviour issue.
  4. As a last resort, you can take your own action through the courts.
