What is flytipping?Flytipping is the dumping of waste illegally instead of using an authorised method such as kerbside collection or using the impot.If AHA has to deal with the issue, they will recoup the costs by recharging the offender. Anything that cannot be recharged to the culprit, will lead to an increase in service charges and rents.What do I do with any unwanted personal items?Tenants should not dispose of unwanted personal items in the communal bin stores or anywhere on their development and are to be taken to the impot.For more information on what can be recycled and where please check here. All tenants and partial owners are responsible for the correct disposal of their waste. Failure to do so will result in an increase in their costs.
