if you want to see fly tipping i will show it you...i shall be going down the old end sometime this week and will take some photos...you just wont believe it..
That's just the local's crap. There's no room for flytipping.
volty dont you believe it...you dont go into areas i do..i see it first hand..i have never been a great fan of bcc but on this occasion i cant blame them...i dont just see general food waste dumped to rot when the dirty buggers refuse to use the wheelies provided..i see piles upon piles of household items ie settees..fridges..washing machines..cookers.tumble dryers...dirty rotting mattresses..you name it they dump it and they dump it on the main streets and roads and at the backs of buildings.i can then go around the same places weeks later and the same stuff is still there but added to..as i said i will shortly be able to provide photos...and some folk have the cheek to say i was a slum person and came out of a slum area something i take a great objection to..if they researched the history enough they would know that it was the housing that were slums not the people who lived in them..unlike today where the dirty unwashed couldnt give a dam about cleanliness ...absolutely no way did we have this problems during my childhood...folk couldnt afford to throw half decent stuff out then...i am fuming again so will finish now..
The email of the species is more deadly than the mail.
thank you sb and the photos i will soon be taking will shock some of you who live in fairly decent areas...trust me seeing is believing...

i hear what you are saying volty and i will try to calm down but on your point of reporting tipping etc to the council...there is no way they would come out straight away to the areas i go to...its not just a case of a couple of fly tips per road or street ..the whole roads or streets are used as dumping grounds from one end to the other...the council would never afford to clear it all up...not with the cuts backs we have and so it just piles up and piles up over weeks and months..it was never like it in my days of living in this perticular area..
