I chucked out a mattress among other things once and booked a council collection. We left the stuff at the side of the house ready for the team. Overnight someone swiped the mattress. Three months later the cheeky sods put it back! I was infuriated and reported it as illegal dumping and eventually the council removed it. Took a while and a few calls. It has to be classed as fly tipping for them to act. As far as I was concerned that's what happened to us even though it was my mattress to start with.
Annie,I was giving my story as an instance,since my bollard has been fitted,I have had no problems,..council won't get involved,because it is on private property,so it's a civil matter.
My point was,I had to clean up his mess that he made on my property,I have to say though,he stays well away from me,since the PC spoke to him.
Oh crikey,I have a single bed,that I would like the council to dispose of,..I leave it outside for them to collect as well,I would never think of that happening!.
Only because of cctv footage.
