Residents leaving rubbish on landings instead of using bin downstairs

There is a resident of the top floor that leaves their large, full rubbish bags on the landing rather than putting their refuse on the bin downstairs. This dumping has increased and has started attracting flies and foxes. They tend to wait until very late at night (maybe even after midnight) to dump their rubbish on the landing, right below the garbage chute, apparently defeated by the size of the chute cavity versus how big their own rubbish bags are when full. This problem started happening a few months back, but the amount of bags being discarded has increased to 3 so far, i feel sorry for the poor person that has to clean the landing and take down someone else's rubbish. Please send someone to check it out?

  • Sadly the dumping of rubbish on the landing continues, this week it appears to be a hot water tank plus the usual bag of rubbish.. not sure how many flats have had such a tank replaced these past few days?

    At the weekend bit was a bag of rubbish that was split and a used nappy had fallen out of it, plus a Boris bike.. the 'dumps' always magically appear in the morning, suggesting that the person leaves the stuff there at some point during the night..
