Garden Waste Skip misuse

As noted in last month’s Beneath Blencathra, Eden District Council is providing a Garden Waste Skip for the village.  The parish council is responsible for it as well as being liable for any costs associated with the disposal of the WHOLE skip if there is any contaminated waste (e.g. anything that isn’t garden waste). 

During the last month, waste other than garden waste has been placed in the skip, including dog excrement.  If this happens again the service will have to be withdrawn.
