Report an issue with waste in gardens
Rubbish can become a statutory nuisance when it includes items that may cause risk or harm to health or is a nuisance to neighbouring properties, for example:
- A build-up of bin bags containing food waste in a garden causing unpleasant odours and flies
- Rotting food or materials which may attract rats or other vermin
- Rubbish which may provide shelter for rodents
- Accumulation of dog waste in gardens
We encourage you to approach your neighbour to talk to them about the problem before contacting the council.
