Policy on Waste Management
Litter & Dog Waste
Residents and visitors who use the Trust’s parkland and facilities are requested to use the waste collection facilities provided.
Litter bins are located across the estate for the use by visitors for small items of litter only and they are usually emptied once a week. For health & hygiene reasons, dog owners should use only the specified dog waste bins and dog waste must not be placed in the litter bins.
If dog owners choose not to use the correct bins or clear up any mess left by their pet(s) the Trust will view this as dog-fouling and reserves the right to take all appropriate action against the offender.
The Trust does not allow household or domestic garden waste to be dumped on its estate and where items are deposited illegally the originators are committing a criminal offence known as Fly Tipping.
Fly Tipping is defined as “the dumping of waste illegally instead of using authorised methods such as kerbside collection or an authorised site” and it applies whether the waste is a single bag of household rubbish or larger items/volumes of garden or other materials
When fly tipped items are left on the estate, efforts will always be made to identify the source of the material. If the origin can be identified the Trust will take action against the perpetrators to recover all of the costs involved in managing the removal and licenced disposal of the material concerned.
The Trust will also report the event to Warrington Borough Council who may take then take their own formal enforcement action against the offender.
If residents or visitors notice any dog -fouling or fly tipping taking place please notify the Trust either by calling 01925 377250 (option 2) or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
