Just like to thank the selfish idiot who couldn't,be bothered to go to the tip,for filling up both bins with garden waste.Of course its a red day and the bins and area surrounding are a proper mess already.Not sure if its going to be Sunday or Monday or even Tuesday before they get emptied.Thanks a lot pal.No good blaming the council on this one.Just an I,m alright Jack,typical self centred person.Cheers!!!

Lots of these kind of people about. I live in the valley (Del Mar 1) and most of the verge going onto the verde, has been cultivated by the Council with lots of neighbours also planting off-cuts, trying to make it nice, but then you get people dumping old sofas, cupboards, building waste etc, and the tip is only a few hundred yards away !

Big Ed,It does make you lose faith in human nature,when the few stick two fingers up to every other person trying to keep things today.I wonder if,we and the council can come up with a way of stopping these people without getting a mouthful of abuse.Providing you see them doing it?

The council should put notices on the bins saying what is allowed to be placed in them, also signs put up saying no fly-tipping.
Even though I don't live on the bottom road, if I have any cuttings that will grow, I take them down and plant them, but I think, is it worth it when people don't respect it, ie building waste dumped and dog crap everywhere.

Big Ed,don't mention dog crap here.According to the dog owners it doesn't exist.Clever dogs here, they all have their own toilet.

We had a fantastic system for disposing of garden waste, old fridges, etc. etc. a lorry came round once a week and picked it all up. This changed to today's system, which is nowhere as good, we now have to go to a tip. The problem with this system,( not open weekends and holidays ), when most people do their gardens, a lot of people don't have transport, and those that do can't transport fridges etc, what about people who don't have any transport. I would think this also costs a lot more than paying for a lorry once a week. So lets go back to the brilliant system we had before.

For some reason people think that the verde / campo areas around Oasis is a rubbish dump as well and I've seen and photographed two people dumping garden waste, one with a big trailer and the other with a wheelbarrow, I sent the photos which showed car registration numbers to Paulino who forwarded them to the police. The response from the Police was that they cannot do anything unless they catch them in the act.......crazy!.
On a positive note the huge mountain of rubbish has been cleared from the junction of Calle Kalandi & Calle Murillo and mounds have been created to hopefully prevent a new mountain being created. One can hope I suppose.

The Police Local can not investigate crimes, they can only act on crimes they see with their own eyes. The Gaurdia are the ones you need to contact

Send the photos to free newspapers and shame them

Further to the original post.
There's a house near me that's been empty for yrs, I think the owners did a 'runner' and ever since, it's started to look shabby and overgrown.
A few days ago there was some action, 2 guys appeared and started knocking the place about. Good news, finally someone might be about to smarten the place up..........unfortunately.. they dumped everything next to the bin. There were panes of glass, an old mattress, pieces of chipboard, cupboard doors, drawers, bags of rubbish that's been opened up and scattered, everything but the kitchen sink ! What a mess ! I didn't see them do it, but it has to be them, there's no other work going on round here.
The blokes haven't been seen for a couple of days, they just seem to turn up willy nilly, but when they do, i'm gonna keep my eye on proceedings, and if poss, video them.
