Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections this week. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

Dust

Excessive dust caused by activities of commercial premises or building sites may result in a statutory nuisance with formal action required. Dust from domestic properties are not covered by statutory nuisance legislation.

Dust that is considered to cause a statutory nuisance is regarded as an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

The production of dust and how regular its production is may be determined as a statutory nuisance depending on the factors involved.

With one off events of dust that contribute to high amounts of dust may also be considered a statutory nuisance depending on any significant negative impacts on neighbours.

Environmental permits , including crushing of concrete, are required to be applied for to operate depending on the activity from us or the Environment Agency .

Though these activities are exempt from nuisance legislation, if dust is leaving the boundary of the premises the conditions of the permit are likely to be breached.
