LETTER: Streets should not be used as a dumping ground
- Credit: Archant
Yet under the surface and not too far from Nene Parade and the Boat House are these regular welcoming sights.
As a member of the Waterlees Street Pride who regularly once a month street pick in our area. I get so angry at how quickly these areas become just dumps for litter and larger objects.
In that respect I freelance and within two weeks I do my personal street pick in these areas that seem to not be on any council agenda to keep tidy.
The bin has been like this for eight days and from whence I first noted it and mentioning to the council’s street picking gang, it has become much worse.
Over the past 16 years I have a complete file, all dated and containing shots of these persistent sites. The supermarket trolley is a one off, but they do turn up from time to time around the Waterlees area; that cost supermarkets about £100 each plus the expense of collecting them.

If this, as a resident is what we can expect from paying high rates plus having to pay to have items of furniture collected, when what I have shown here is moved for free, but at additional costs to the local council.
