Rubbish clearance

Hello fellow Brightlingers

I walk down to the bottom of Brickyard Lane most days with the dog and there is a load of rubbish tipped into the stream. I reported it over 6 months ago, but it’s still there. Someone did tell me though that it may technically be on Darvell land. It is really starting to annoy me, so I have 2 ideas…

  1. does anyone have a contact in the Darvell community to request they come and clear it?
  2. shall we take the JFDI approach? Can I get a 1 or 2 volunteers to join me one weekend to come and clear it ourselves? A couple of us would only take 20 mins but there are a few larger pieces that may need 2 people to lift out of the stream. I am pretty sure it will  all fit in the back of our car and I can drive it to the tip?

  1. Dear Steve, I am happy to come and help you clear it. I think self help is best! I have a trailer that maybe we could put the rubbish in but I have a horrible feeling that you can’t go into the tip with a trailer, so maybe we need to bag it and then we can walk the bags into the tip? Nicole


  2. Hi Steve
    My neighbour Barry says the Darvell PR man is Bernard Hibbs. 01580 883300.
    Not sure I’d be much help getting stuff out of the stream, but I’d be happy to put things in the back of my car. There’s quite a lot of space as the back seats go down or can be taken out completely. Chris
