    Actually that sign would be an advert for tippers on second thought. Perhaps when the cpz is introduced the parking will reduce and vans wont be so comfortable just pulling up?

    I wondered whether putting up some planters there might help but it is on a bit of slope. Or maybe paint a big pair of eyes on the wall. There must be some low cost way of discouraging them.

    Someone tried the planters thing at a couple of fly-tipping points in West Norwood and unfortunately it didn't seem to discourage it. Only meant that the plants got ruined as well as stuff being dumped :rolleyes:

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Most of the fly-tipping round us isn’t bulky stuff that should be taken to Lambeth tips. It’s just ordinary rubbish that could be bagged up and put in wheelie bins. I’m perplexed as to why it’s dumped where it is.

    I’m getting well fcuked off with fly tipping in our street and around the area. This load of sh1t was dumped recently right in the path where kids are trying to get to Primary school. Then a few days later they dumped more in the same place.

    Thinking of investing in some fake cctv cameras and a few of these signs.

    That corner gets it particularly badly - we know the people who live in there and I feel bad for them - they once painted our front wall when it got tagged just to try and stop further tagging down the street. They've also had their wall crashed into at least once by people speeding through the bridge and misjudging the traffic island. The walk into school along the street is an absolute minefield of fly tipped crap and dog shit.

    Nanker Phelge Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

    Bags of food waste left out does my head in. There's a tree out front and some twit keeps putting bags of rubbish there which then get torn up by cats and foxes and strewn across the street.

    Council have screwed a sign to the tree asking for people not to ditch shit out there.

    We have wheelie bins out back where rubbish is collected.

    I don't get why they keep doing it. They must step out and see the dirty nappies and pots of old rice scattered up the street.

    Shows such a lack of consideration to others who live here.

    Lambeth do have a van that visits my estate daily. If you leave a large item out back it is gone within 24hrs.

    I wish the council would introduce a ‘free skip dump day’ scheme, whereby every couple of months a council lorry would slowly cruise down the street and any resident wanting to put anything in the skip could just flag the lorry down and do just that.

    It's a given that if you leave anything out the front of the house, someone will come and take it. I've left tables, chairs, an old cooker. Gone within fifteen minutes. I tell myself that it's great to see something given new life rather than destroyed at the dump. It has been a while since I've done it.

    Recently, when I've see fly tipping, I wonder if it is the shite which they can't use and they drop it off in the first place they can find.

    Maybe the source of the problem is that culture of not disposing of waste properly to begin with.

    If the item is in acceptable condition fair enough, and clearly you’re responsible enough to leave just such items outside. But some others will leave completely ruined or broken furniture, appliances etc knowing nobody will take them.

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    Someone stole a skip, dangerously overfilled it and then flytipped on Somers road off Brixton hill earlier this year. Took well over a month to get it removed

    They always get lifted one way or another though. I think salvage guys lift anything, take them back to their yard, and when they find it isn't worth anything, they will bring it back and dump it on a street corner.

    In their mind they've lifted it from the street and return it to the street.

    The person who has dumped the broken armchair thinks someone will have fixed it and that they have done the right thing because they don't see it outside their gate any more.

    While I've been guilty of it in the past, I think that the council should try to prevent that sort of 'recycling'. Issue fines perhaps.

    At the end of Probyn, for some reason there is an unusually high proportion of dirty old mattresses.

    Did the council really bolt that sign on to the tree like that?

    It looks as ugly as the rubbish that's been dumped underneath it.

    Fair enough. Nobody's ever going to think that someone will get use out of those. And the salvage men in the van wouldn't bother to pick those up. That's out and out fly tipping.

    The bar staff in the Tulse Hill Hotel spend a lot of energy trying to be anywhere other than the bar. To head out back and mooch about doing 'other things' seems to be a general practice.

    I've always thought the Railway was bad for lack of attention to customers, but the Tulse is upping the game in making people wait and being all nonchalant about it.

    As I say, signs like that are just an advert for places to dump. Pop a camera and a sign "smile your on tv" or something. But nailing that to a tree is silly. Probably kill the tree in the long run.

    I've heard an apocryphal tale about a sign which went up in post war 1940s which said "DO NOT THROW STONES AT THIS SIGN". And people came from miles around to do so

    Also, when I first moved into the area, there was a sign about kerb crawlers and prostitutes on Hillside Road. I thought I was living in a red light district and kept an eye out for all the filth. Had I been in the market for such services, I'd have been out in my Mackintosh.

    Putting up signs instructing people not to do anything will just encourage it.

    I remember that sign. I'm glad it was there otherwise I wouldn't have been able to buy my house.

    Snigger. A picture of the sign would have been perfect for shit london.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Same here. Van visits every weekday, so bits of furniture, old appliances etc get carted away, no bother.
