Brook Street residents will have received a letter from the Waste Management Officer, Glen Conway, at Hasting Borough Council (below). The letter informs us that there is a probability that residents are fly-tipping: “we are not placing the blame at any particular households…”; however, it is known that local businesses, particularly those on Queens Road illegally deposit waste in the bins, though the fly-tipping of furniture, tyres, and even ironing boards, is a daily occurrence. Any residents with any information about who might be behind the fly-tipping should contact the council on my hastings.
It is also clear that residents do not always recycle their recyclables; merely depositing them in the bins rather than separating them out for the Tuesday recycling collection.
The committee is also keen to investigate the options for a bin exclusively for organic “kitchen” waste to reduce the amount of landfill materials.
