Illegal dumping of rubbish


James

Recommended Posts

Someone (or some people) keep dumping rubbish at the corner of our street. This is a total eyesore and really gets on my nerves!


I guess some people are just ignorant and selfish. Does anyone have any idaes as to how I can put a stop to it (other than installing CCTV or patrolling the area 24 hours a day)?

if it's obviously personal waste, have a look through and when you get an address, call the council and dump the stuff in their front yard. Someone mentioned a few weeks ago that they'd found loads of cardboard packaging (from furniture or something) and found the address label on it !! Someone's from Dunstan's Rd I think.

James,


On the corner of Crawthew Grove and Frogley Road?


It isn't ignorance, it's just selfishness. I am always amazed that someone who bothers to peel and cook veges, uses specialist surface cleaners, or whatever normal behavior is evidenced by the rubbish, is also inclined to furtively dump their rubbish in the middle of the night to the general detriment of the rest of us.

When we were clearing out my in laws house, we contacted some waste removers who assured us that they were taking odd bits of furniture, old broken books etc to a licensed dump. A few weeks later we were sent a letter from Lambeth Environmental Team saying that they were taking us to court for dumping stuff on Peabody Hill. They had found some broken books with my father in laws name in them ( He had an unusual Polish name) and traced the house via council tax records. We rang them up and informed them what had happened and we still had the flyer of the waste removal firm with us. lambeth took the flyer, sorted out some' marked' rubbish, and contacted the waste disposal people and caught them in the act of dumping.

I had a local person who regularly dumped rubbish on the corner of my street. Each time I opened the bag and had a look for a name and address of something included in the rubbish. The fourth or fifth time I found a name of a guy round the corner. I went round with his rubbish, banged on his door and told him to stop dumping rubbish in my street. Weirdly, he had an immaculate green bin - totally spotless inside. It hasn't happened since.

    • Smear it with spicy sauce? The fox may drink your whole pond after but it probably won't come back...
    • Hi everyone, does anyone have any large plastic boxes they do not need?  The type used for packing items when moving house?   I am moving soon and just wondered whether anyone has any that they want to get rid of ....... many thanks, Annie 
    • The Kirkdale place is now rebranded as Dulwich Reclamation.  From casual observation more and more people are chucking out Victorian Edwardian and 30s doors as they are referbishing their properties.  Less interest in period features now.  They are often in good condition but once in the skip will get quickly battered.   If they are stripped in caustic soda that can warp them.  There are far less strippers (!) than last millennium and you can no longer get the non caustic alternative spice the pesky EU banned methylene dichloride just because some people aphixiated when using industrial quantities 
    • Re-opened, revisited, and found to be as good as ever.
