We have a big problem with this in our street (Henley Drive
) as well.
My theory is that a lot of the problems are caused by landlords who don't ensure the flats they let out are cleared out properly at the end of a tenancy, which would extend to telling their new tenants what the council will, and will not, remove via the regular bin collection.
We have the additional problem of the council saying that our road is private and that the removal of other people's crapola must be authorised by our managing agents, for a charge.
I think there is a big hole in the council's waste removal offer here. Rather than piecemeal collection of fly-tipped junk, a monthly, street by street, "stick it all here on this date and we'll take it away" amnesty would go a long way to fixing the problem.
