AUTUMN is upon us, and once again we experience the effects of the 'stuff everyone else, I'm going to have a bonfire' brigade.
I've just opened my window, and guess what; my house is filled with the smoke from someone else's trash. Thanks very much indeed.
As if it's not enough that some farmers still insist on (illegally) setting fire to their stubble, often choosing weekends to do it so they don't get caught.
Please take note - your rubbish, leaves, branches or otherwise, DOES cause acrid, unpleasant smoke for everyone else if burned. It doesn't just stop us hanging our washing out- it stops us opening our windows, going for a pleasant walk or cycle ride, and in some cases for those with sensitive lungs, it stops us feeling healthy.
You may also want to watch:
It doesn't just disappear- the smoke billows for miles around and causes real unpleasantness and distress for many people.
If your rubbish contains any plastics or rubber, it is also toxic and causes dangerous fumes and pollution.

Please take your household and garden rubbish you can't cope with through normal waste collections or composting to the household tip, or contact the council for advice.
This selfish behaviour is just unacceptable- it's ruining everyone's environment and it should stop.
