Household articles disposed in bottle bank

Reported via mobile in the Fly-tipping category by DR COLIN F COATES at 16:48, Tuesday 30 April 2024

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5917298.

The Bottle Bank on Pinewood Drive Lancaster Park, Morpeth is in considerable disrepair. This was reported 6 months ago and is currently being "investigated". Several residents have offered to repair this compound but no permission has been given. Partly due to the poor state of the compound some people seem to think it is a general dumping ground. Currently, apart from the picture, there are many batteries and considerable liter and glass strewn everywhere near the glass bins.

  • The council has been 7 months investigating this but nothing has been done. I intend to clean this area up myself and cut back the hedges which trap rubbish. A small effort from NCC would then be to make good the fence around the compound. The Scope clothes bank should be removed as it is always full and therefore useless.
