Illegal dumping of waste and fly tip

Illegal fly tip causes nuisance and annoyance to other residents in the locality. Fly tip refers to waste that is disposed of inappropriately which can include:

  • leaving large household items such as old sofas and fridges in bin areas or areas near your property,

  • placing black bin bags on balconies and landings and not placing them in bins provided for that purpose;

To dispose of rubbish inappropriately is a breach of your Tenancy Agreement and if PHP have any evidence of such a breach we are likely to  recharge you the costs associated with putting right this right. Please note that PHP may choose to commence Court proceedings in the event that this charge remains unpaid.

You can report incidences of illegal fly tip online to the Borough of Poole by clicking here or by contacting PHP on 0800 6523900
