If we can find a rag and bone or scrap metal merchant we could probably get rid of all the rubbish people decide to leave in their gardens. Also Lewisham council charges £15 for three items to be removed from your property. I think this facility should be free.

Lewisham councilloid: "It's costing us quite a bit collecting people's bulky rubbish, isn't it?".
Second councilloid: "I know, let's charge people a hefty fee for taking rubbish away!".

One year on...

Councilloids inspecting budget:
First Councilloid: "We seem to be spending a lot more money this year removing flytipped rubbish than last year, don't we?"

Council logic. Genius!

There's an old builders yard where I have never seen any activity next to the sadly closed/redeveloped Moor Park Hotel on Wood Vale. Does this count on this thread or is this just another excuse for me to go on about pubs and train lines that shut decades ago.

But on the wrong side of the tracks they are building new domestic storage facilities for those of us on the posh estate who are still waiting for our extensions to be completed. Perhaps you could also have some skips or landfill down your way so you don't have to flytip in our neck of the woods Toffee Jim

Domestic storage? Where's that then. I need to find some for my missus, and the closer the better!

I don't think you are allowed to store people in those facilities.

Julianm - I like your thinking! Maybe you're onto something with this one......

Unfortuantely I don't think she'll agree. I said she could move in with me in March, but she's not bringing all her rubbish with her. Only my rubbish in my flat.
