. . . why can’t people just take rubbish to the tip?

Thank you for highlighting the persistent problem of bonfires. Why is it even necessary to burn rubbish on a summer’s day, when we have a garden waste collection or the use of the tip in Romsley?

I don’t think during the summer months that there is a good time to have a bonfire, either day or night, with people using their gardens and house windows open.

Bonfire smoke is extremely unpleasant. Please be more considerate to your neighbours.
