Fly tipping in Boscombe has been raising concerns of residents on Churchill Road.
Community bins have been seen to be over-flowing with rubbish with items as large as mattresses left strewn across the floor by the bins as well as bits of cardboard thrown around.
This has led volunteers to step in to help the problem.
Boscombe West council have called in Waste Investigations Support Enforcement (WISE) to work in partnership with the council to a change in the current situation.
Mark Elkins, a local volunteer, visits the site of the community bins to help clear up the rubbish.
He said: “It’s known to be worse here for years to be honest with you.”
He said that there are a lot of brand-new items of clothing in the piles but commented that the general number of fly tipping issues is not as bad as before.
Boscombe West has been known to have one of the highest crime rates in the county, second to the town centre. Mr Elkins believes that the reason for the high amount of fly tipping is because of the area that surrounds the bins is known for committing crimes.
He said: “There is a lot higher proportion of private rented accommodation in the area so this has come up in meetings and fly tipping is always coming up this year.
“Because there is such a transient community – this is why beds and mattresses and three-piece suits being dumped.”
Mr Elkins added that there have been several fines handed out already.
