A Sunday walker has called me to say that a new load of fly-tipping has been dumped on the bend on Bradmore Lane almost blocking the road. Apparently there is space for a car to get through, but the local walker is reporting it to police and the council as a hazard. If anyone walks that way and is able to take a picture, please post in this thread. Thanks

Bit of a mess at the top of Bulls Lane this morning. There is another pile of rubble further down the road towards Thunder Bridge.

If the council is going to charge the non-fly-tippers 35 a year for disposing of our garden waste, it needs a plan for dealing with those who choose not to pay and find other means. I don't see why those of us who cough up should have to put up with this. Photo taken at junction of the BOAT Green Lanes with West End Lane north of Wildhill.

...of course, it is possible that the nearby borough of Enfield, where this is an epidemic, is now totally full of fly-tipped waste, and they're looking further afield.

Just walked along West End Lane north of Wildhill and spotted 17 black bin bags of rubbish in the hedgerow on the north side of the lane between the two bends from Green Lanes to the Essendon BOAT. It looks like someone has driven along while someone else has chucked the bags into the hedgerow at regular intervals. It amazes me what sort of animals does this sort of thing while so many in the community recycle and do their best to take responsibility for the planet. Reported to WHBC. One of the 17 pictured below.

There is an abandoned caravan on the east side of West End Lane, Wildhill between The Woodman and The Candlestick. I have reported it to the council.

That will take you some time to illustrate on your fly tipping map.

I gave up updating the map some time ago, Larry. It became 1) too much work, and 2) too depressing.  :(

Yet again, the byway (14) between Wildhill and Essendon has been totally blocked at the junction with West End Lane. Someone has dumped another load of rubbish. Take care if you walk that way, there are some sharp objects. Horses & bikes won't be able to get through until it's cleared. I have reported it to the council.

I see someone has flytipped what looks like a old fridge on the pathway at the bottom of Moffats, thought this sort of activity was confined to country roads.

Are you missing a delivery of your latest Next catalogue?

Just spotted a host of catalogues dumped in the ditch in Bulls Lane.

I don't know if someone knows how to tweet Next and the council (if they are the appropriate people)? This should be an easy prosecution, ;) as the names of the intended recipients are clearly on the packaging, so Next could trace who was supposed to deliver the catalogues.

I emailed NEXT to let them know and have received this reply.

Thank you for your email.
 
Could I please have the address of where the Directories have been dumped and I can pass this on to Hermes who will have them removed and escalate the complaint.
 
Kind regards,
Christine | Next Customer Services Team


Can someone give a specific location (post code or nearest junction) so we can let them know.

I contacted PCSO Sam Griffin a few days ago. She was going to have a look. Apparently, the police don't deal with it, but she was going to be in touch with the council. I've not heard back, though, so must chase it up. I'm glad you contacted Next, and interesting that they use Hermes.
