Individuals and businesses have a duty to dispose of their waste properly.

They must also not allow their property to cause a nuisance to others, through failure to dispose properly of their waste.

If issues around waste at a neighbouring property are causing you a problem we recommend speaking to the owner first before you report it.

If this is not successful or where individuals are not approachable, we work with a free mediation service who can assist you in communicating with your neighbour. We recommend phoning them on 01424 446 808 to discuss their services before you report the problem to us.

You can also take your own action through the magistrate’s court.

Please use the reporting form to see what we can help with and for advice on who else can help. Please note, anonymous complaints cannot be processed.
