Comment on this story on the

It has been claimed that an Acton resident who walks in a frame was trapped in his own home for ten days after fly-tipped waste left at the front of the property.

Residents of Hereford Road believe that the large number of plastic bags of rubbish and piles of cardboard were left by a tenant of the Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association (NHG) . Pictures taken by residents show the entrance to the property blocked by the dumped waste.

No action was taken after multiple emails to NHG and local councillors leading to residents to claim that it was responsible for ‘disgraceful pollution’ of the street and accusing them of a lack of local care and antisocial behaviour.

The housing associations says that dealing with fly-tipping is not its responsibility.

A Notting Hill Genesis spokesperson said, “Fly-tipping should be reported to the local authority, but in this case we have contacted our estate services contractors to have the waste removed.”
