Rubbish and pests
Rubbish on private land
Often a build up of rubbish can attract pests as well as look untidy. We can't always take action against rubbish problems but have powers to enforce rubbish removal from private land in certain circumstances.
If you are bothered by rubbish accumulations or think that they may be a public health risk please contact us and we will investigate the matter.
Report rubbish on public land
Problems associated with rubbish on public land or the highways should be referred to the Council
This includes items which may pose a risk to public health such as needles, syringes and other drug related items, removal of dead animals and spillages on the highway.
You can report these problems from the streets fault reporting page.
