Fly tipping is a criminal offence and one that SW9 Community Housing takes very seriously. Not only is it unsightly, it is anti-social and dangerous to children. It can also lead to increased service charge costs as dumped items need to be removed from the estate.
To help keep our public areas clean and tidy, our Board has agreed a new policy that will allow us to fine fly tippers up to £1,000.
Says Edwin Maharaj, Neighbourhood Services Officer: “It is important that everyone keeps the estate safe. There is CCTV in operation at all times, we can trace dumped rubbish back to an individual and we will fine them.”
There is actually no need to dump rubbish. SW9 Community Housing’s cleaning contractor, Zing, is on hand to collect bulk rubbish for only a minimal charge or, in certain circumstances, for free. Just call the cleaning team on 020 3177 1103.
