In Ashington we have a serious issue with waste disposal and fly tipping, with over 40 fly-tips being removed by Rapid Response each week, 72,840kg collected from the streets from April to end of October. This is a reactive response to illegal fly-tipping, not a service. It is delivered by Northumberland County Council and paid for by Ashington Town Council, via your precept.

The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) has announced that it has secured part of a £295 million fund to support local authorities in implementing separate food waste collections. This could mean funding is on the way for Northumberland County Council.
Defra states that the £295 million will be allocated to cover the costs of transitioning to food waste collections, including capital expenses like bins and vehicles, resource costs to set up new services, and ongoing operating costs. Some of this funding has already been secured, with further amounts to be bid for in future spending rounds.
