Before you report it 

It’s always a good idea to try and resolve problems informally. Try and talk to the person responsible for the rubbish accumulation, they may not be aware that they are causing a problem. 

If this doesn't resolve the problem or you can't talk to the person responsible, you can report it to us.

Before you report an accumulation of rubbish, you will need the following information:

  • Your name, address, telephone number and email address
  • The address you are complaining about and the type of nuisance
  • When and for how long the nuisance normally occurs
  • The way the nuisance affects you 

We will not investigate anonymous complaints.
