If they are burning rubber it might be worth drawing their attention to the WHC guidelines on garden bonfires.

I tweeted to try to draw WHC's attention to the problem.

The Environmental Health department strongly discourages people having bonfires and offer advice on alternative means of disposal of garden waste.

If you wish us to investigate this matter further please contact the Environmental Health Department on 01707 357242

For more information on Bonfires and anti social behaviour please see our website: http://www.welhat.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=258

Thank you,

WHBC

Agreed. Totally selfish. We've had one down the village end of Moffats. Have tweeted the question.

Hi Greybeard,

I have merged your post with an existing thread on this issue but left your topic subject line as it was.

Smelly bonfire on Bluebridge this lunchtime. I wonder if the owner considered that neighbours might have the windows open on such a windy day?  I somehow doubt it.  Ah well, time to shut the windows. Perhaps they'd be kind enough to post here when they have finished so I can open the windows again.

Yes I just got a car full of smoke driving up Moffats. It made me think.

With all the fuss about the incinerator which I believe is filtered passed EU recommendations, why has nobody done anything about bonfires which I would say pound for pound are far more polluting.

In the meantime folks-hey why not cease being selfish ***** and go to the dump with all your cr@p. I know, crazy eh!

Me? I cant let the neighbors out smoke me. Im just off to the the back of the garden to burn a tyre filled with diesel!!

Regarding BrookyP's point - I wonder what's more damaging 1) a garden bonfire in the neighbourhood or 2) an incinerator two miles away?  Would be interested to know what the comparison is in air pollution.

With all the fuss about the incinerator which I believe is filtered passed EU recommendations, why has nobody done anything about bonfires which I would say pound for pound are far more polluting.

Will ask the experts...

I wish the person in Warrengate Road who has had a bonfire running ALL day today billowing out thick smoke and ash covering all of our cars etc would read this forum.
We have been unable to open any window or go into the garden to work due to the thoughtlessness of this individual.  No thought given to people around them !

so basically its unenforceable to one off incidents which are the major problem.


They should be banned in my opinion-I cant see any reason why anyone would need to light one when its so easy to recycle.


we had someone burning plastic the other night in mimm/calder area. Just unbelievable.


hey ho nothing will change. ::)

One of the hottest nights of the year. Absolutely no wind. Everyone'sbedroom  windows open. Perfect time for a bonfire!

There is a moron down westlands drive currently filling everyone's house with smoke.  Have they no common decency?

If you notice builders burning bonfires in the neighbourhood, and you suspect it's commercial trade waste, WHBC's environment team are quick off the mark to investigate. It's easy to log a call. Once you do they send an inspector out to have a word with the builders. They also write to the owners of the property.
