A Durham County Council spokesperson said: “We take action against those who leave waste in yards or gardens in order to improve areas for all residents and visitors, not only is it unsightly but it can be a source of harbourage for vermin and pests but it can also be a target for arson.

“To report any issues of waste in yards and gardens please call 03000 260000 or use the on line reporting system.”
