The illegal dumping, or flytipping, of domestic and commercial waste is an important and controversial issue. Waste has a significant impact on the appearance and ‘feel’ of the areas in which it happens. Parks are spoilt and residential areas can be made to appear run down.
Lewisham council maintains a team of people responsible for dealing with flytipping and you can help them by reporting waste you see in your area. There are several ways to do this.
Fix My Street App
The app is available for iOS and android devices. Once you’ve installed the app you can use it to photograph dumped waste and it will be passed to the council for action. Once the report has been dealt with you’ll receive a notification and a photograph of the area after it’s been cleaned.
