Excessive fly-tipping on public access land

Reported via desktop in the Fly-Tipping category anonymously at 15:37, Thu 2 September 2021

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

As shown in the pictures, where the fly-tipping is happening is clearly not private land. It is in front of the private gate, right on the public street (Albion Road). I hope these updated photos help Hackney council to understand that this is the council's responsibility as it is completely out of control of the residents who live in the Mews to stop anyone from fly-tipping there. It's the same as someone fly-tipping in front of a private house, on the pavement.

The communal bins for Emerald Mews residents (160a Albion Road) have public access from Albion Road, and therefore seem to often be a target for fly-tipping. Over the last few days (date today is 2/9/21), people have dropped off more and more rubbish (garden waste, full suitcases, and full bin liners), the contents of which I'm not aware of. There is now a small van load of rubbish, and too much for residents to absorb into the existing bins. I haven't seen the fly-tippers themselves, so it seems likely it's happening after dark. As this is a repeat problem, though on a larger scale this time, perhaps we need to consider a sign from Hackney Council to act as a deterrent?
