Fly tipping or litter?

Reported via iOS in the General fly tipping category by Robert harris at 17:21, Fri 5 November 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3106914.

After being told this morning that the Council “does not clear litter from the rear access road at Bourges Blvd”, “ We only clear flytipping” I asked why they had not cleared the glass from the road which was reported over 6 months ago. I was told, “ It is only cleared by the council if it is broken glass” ( it is broken glass, see photo ) “ But we will clear any fly tipping from the road”. So we have a team arrive this morning and they do a litter pick and leave all the fly tipped items…,,,…PRICELESS Why does the council not respond to other items in this vicinity. They mark the nearby reports as closed ?

  • We were unable to clear this fly tip. It may be that we were unable to locate it or it may have been on private land.

    Fly-tipping will only be cleared from land owned or maintained by Peterborough City Council. We are unable to clear fly-tipping from private land as this is the responsibility of the land owner.

    Whilst we cannot provide further details at this time, residents can obtain information on land ownership through HM Land Registry if required. In some cases, the council's environmental enforcement team will investigate further. Therefore, this job has not been completed.

    State changed to: No further action
