Rubbish left in front gardens

People should be encouraged to remove domestic rubbish such as old mattresses and sofas from their front gardens. The council should give notice to the owner to remove the rubbish and if not complied with within a given period of time the owner should be fined. 

Why the contribution is important

Rubbish in gardens encorages others to add their own rubbish to the pile creating even more rubbish. This is unsightly and also bad for the environment and our health, as it can encourage rats to move in and breed

    May be worth also considering why people are not able to dispose of large items. Maybe charging people and big proportion of their weekly income to remove a mattress is what is getting in the way (not their neglectful-ness) ?

    We take driving to the tip for granted but not everyone has access to a motor vehicle to tip for free.
