Council threatens fines for flytipping on Sheffield estate where bin chutes are too small and wheelie bins are locked away

  • last month
Last month, The Star reported on the Lansdowne Estate in Sheffield where the council has locked away the wheelie bins and the bin chutes are too small for modern waste - leading to bin bags piling up in communal areas across the area.
Now the council has sent a letter to all residents telling them to use smaller bin bags, warning that they will be investigating all "flytipping", and handing out fines of up to £400.
Here, The Star speaks to residents about this ultimatum, discusses the alternatives they want to see and what the council could do to find a solution by working with residents.
