Once we receive a report about a dirty front garden, we'll go and take a look. If we think it's a possible hazard or nuisance, we'll speak to the property occupier and ask them to clear it.
Depending on what the waste is and how hazardous it is to others, we may issue the occupier with a formal notice to remove it.
If they ignore this, we have the power to issue them with a fixed penalty notice (a fine) and/ or we can clear the mess ourselves and then charge the occupier for this work.
