Help us stamp out flytipping

We’re starting a month of action today to crack down on the flytippers who blight our blocks.

Our housing staff will be knocking on doors throughout the city to remind residents to keep an eye out for flytippers – and report them to us.

Flytipping is bulky rubbish that is illegally left on land without the owner’s permission.

We know that it’s a problem on some of our estates which is why we’re taking action.

Leah Sanderson, PCH Senior Housing Officer, said: “We know residents don’t like it – it’s unsightly.

“It also costs us money to remove. This is money we could put to better use on our services for residents.

“We don’t provide a free bulky waste collection service. Paid-for collections are offered by Plymouth City Council or waste can be taken to Weston Mill or Chelson Meadow.

“Anyone caught flytipping could face action against their tenancy or lease and we’ll also recharge for its collection and disposal.

“We’ll also report flytippers to the city council who may prosecute and fine them.”

Housing staff will be giving out leaflets and fridge magnets to each household, with the magnets displaying the numbers people can ring to report flytipping.

We’ll also be reminding people not to leave belongings like prams and bikes in stairwells as these can be a fire risk.

To report flytipping, call us on 0808 230 6500 or Plymouth City Council on 01752 668000.
