We are removing huge volumes of rubbish from our open spaces. Please take rubbish home and avoid littering.

[Updated: 07/05/2020 – 15:06]

We are experiencing high levels of fly tipping in our open spaces, this includes general household waste, rotting food, garden waste and furniture units. This is taking up valuable staff time and effort to clear up.

There is no excuse for fly tipping.

Three Rivers District Council’s household refuse and recycling collections are now operating normally and Hertfordshire County Council Recycling Centres, the local “tips” are starting to reopen from 11th May, this includes the Waterdale Recycling Centre in Garston.

Staff are maintaining services where practical. Emails are being managed remotely and hopefully will be responded to quickly. We have an issue with our telephone system and currently can only access messages when someone is in the office, that is most working days, but our apologies if there is a delay in responding to voicemail messages.

Contact details for the Parish Council are on this link.

Staff are trying to keep put open spaces tidy and free of litter, this is not being helped by large quantities of domestic waste being dumped in litter bins, which are installed for small items of waste.

Three Rivers District Council have amended waste collection arrangements but there are still regular household collections. There is no reason to dump waste in parks or recreation areas. Revised waste collection arrangements are detailed on this link (scroll down to Refuse and Recycling).
