Several alleyways have become unusable and the problem seems to continue to get worse.

One resident said “This road is no more a residential area, it is a commercial area. I am not happy at all.”

It is believed that certain local residents are now using this alleyway as a dumping ground for unwanted household goods.

Swindon Borough Council states that “Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish. Swindon Borough Council collects fly-tipped materials from public land and is responsible for the enforcement of the fly-tipping regulations.”
