I have today during a drive and walk around reported dozens of issues around Framwellgate Moor front street and the Terraces.
Numerous overflowing bins, many of them recycling bins which are not due emptying until March 1st.
Numerous flytipping incidents including black bags, fridge and freezers, sofas and other rubbish.
A lot of wind blown litter.
I have raised concerns with the Head of Setvice and Clean and green managers about the clear failure of clean up in the area caused by removal of or lack of proper litter picking and street bin emptying on Friday afternoon now there is no weekend service.
Senior officers will be out on site this week to assess what needs doing.
Please help improve the area by: Reporting overflowing bins including wheelie bins, reporting any bin anywhere with no lid and letting us know of any flytipping or rubbish incidents anywhere across Framwellgate Moor, Pity Me, Newton Hall and Brasside.
I also arranged for the area behind Front St Pity Me to be litter picked and reported several more flytipping incidents there. We need to keep on top of this and need residents help to do it so please do report all issues.
