Residents reminded about your waste, your responsibility

No fly-tipping posters used in the North Lynn "Your waste, your responsibility" campaign

Published: Thursday, 20th August 2020

Letters are being sent to residents of several streets in North End, North Lynn this week to remind them to dispose of their waste properly.

Following previous action in the area, which resulted in a reduction of waste being left in alleyways, nearly 500 properties will receive a letter advising them of the need to put their waste out on the right day and in the right place at the front of their property, ready for bin collection day.

Cllr Brian Long, Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, said: “There have been issues in the past with people fly-tipping their rubbish in the alleyways in the area. These alleyways are private land and waste will not be collected from them.

“Residents must take responsibility for the waste they create and dispose of it legally, most people do. It keeps the area clean and tidy. The borough council will investigate and prosecute cases of fly-tipping.”

As well as these reminder letters, signage in the area is also being updated.
