@BrockleyCentral Wow, our regular fly-tippers have excelled themselves today on Brockley Way. pic.twitter.com/uG2cZqZbiC

Makes a change from the usual builders' debris. It must be costing the council a fortune to clear up the regular flytipping from this patch. I wonder if they might install a camera to catch the perpetrators in the act.
They actually installed a camera about a week ago- there have been two giant fly-tippings this week- one of which had some sort of gas cannisters, so that was cleared up quickly.. hopefully they catch them now!
Makes a change from the usual dumping of everything including tyres on Avignon Road!
Had to pay a private firm to remove my rubbish as lewisham dump no longer accepts "DIY waste" in fact there is a lot they don't accept most other dumps do.No wonder Lewisham council has the greenest dump in London and high rates of flytipping.Well done Lewisham!
Lewisham council does nothing to prevent flytipping. I’m constantlysending photos through to the council when people leave their crap outsidetheir homes/flats and street corners. I use the "love lewisham"iPhone app to post up these types of flytipping complaints. The more peoplethat send these complaints hopefully the quicker the council will deal theproblem. Start uploading peoples.
I kept reporting these and finally the council installed a CCTV the other week. Hopefully the 'tippers' didn't see the camera (its pretty obvious) and the film will show the vehicle. With all the CCTV around other cameras should be able to pick up the vehicles movements even if they covered up the number plate. My bike route to work everyday (apart from this morning!)
Ah so that's why someone dumped an entire kitchen, complete with cupboard units, oven and fridge in the mews behind our garden a few years ago...
Brockley has always been the home of dumped tyres... Just about every street or street corner has at least 1 dumped tyre, at least in the conservation area.... It's 1 of the 1st things I noticed about the area when I moved here in 2006.... Dumped tyres and lost cat notices... Do you think there's a link?
I have an alibi.Lewisham dump doesn't accept the following:bathswindow framessacks of general DIY wastekitchen unitsconcrete fence postswater tankstoiletsplasterboardworktops.No mention of types but unless it's gold plated the jobsworths at the dump won't take it. Nice to know we're getting a valuable local service for our council tax.
Perhaps it's the start of a brilliant new water-slide park?
I hope one of our excellent local artists turns them into something lovely.
has this picture been instagrammed?!
I think Lewisham is pretty efficient at removing flytipping, but catching people in the act, or with enough evidence to take enforcement action is difficult. Isn't this bit of Brockley Way in Southwark borough anyway, or have I got that wrong?
Good I'll get those hippo bags and throw the rubbish over your fence. You seem to be happy to see basic public services like dumps be taken away.I'll be buggered if I'm paying another fairground carnie £100 (or hiring a bloody skip) to take away my non recyclable rubbish.
Brockley's Ukrainian community organising a collection for the barricades in Kiev's Independence Square?
Having disposed of 100 tyres legally last year I discovered it isn't that expensive if you shop around, so it's totally mindless that someone would do this.The same goes for all the dumped mattresses which the council will collect for free if you fill in an online form!
Course it has.
It is Lewisham.
Some stuff I will leave outside my house, because sometimes it's stuff people want. The right stuff disappears remarkably quickly round here.
How did you happen to have 100 tyres?!
I bought a small piece of land and the old owner was kind enough to include them in the sale.
I want to know more about this land
Can you be 100% sure they were disposed of legally? Did you follow them all the way to the dump... I mean The Official Recycling Center ;)
I didn't follow them all the way to the recycling centre, but I did check that the company was registered with the Environment Agency (which is wall you need to do as an individual).
Prob in the Thames, good old Tinkers and their wily business ways
I agree, good stuff goes really fast and if it's not on the pavement it's not flytipping. I was talking to a friend about leaving stuff on the wall. She said that in Sweden they call it treasure walling. Every last Sunday of the month people put stuff out for anybody who wants it. That way if you're needing something you can have a wander round on that day and see if you can find it on a treasure wall before heading to the shops.
Possibly the reason it was cheap is due to them dumping the tyres here a year later
