Why, when the council provide a free collection service (advising you of the date of collection so you can put it out the night before), do residents insist on still dumping random bits of rubbish on the estates? I live in Eastwell House and nearly every day you see random bits of furniture, electrical goods etc just dumped out on the green areas.
It's so frustrating as so many residents try to keep the estate relatively presentable and i'm sure it's the same few that make keep dumping. Has anyone tackled this issue successfully in other estates?
I might try that as i've noticed when people dump stuff in the actual stairwell others have put a note out saying "do you think this is going to walk to the tip itself? Please call council and dispose of correctly" and it seems to work.
It's just so frustrating as it's so unneccessary and to me it just shows a basic lack of respect.
