Fly-tipping and littering - Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste.
If the rubbish is on private land it is the landowner's responsibility to remove it.
If the rubbish is on council land you should contact your local authority to come and remove the rubbish.
Contact Crimestoppers instead to report large scale illegal dumping (such as lorries dumping rubbish) and hazardous waste.
Noise nuisance - If you’re having a problem with noise like loud music, noisy pubs, rowdy parties or barking dogs in your neighbourhood, your council can help you.
Regular loud noise causing nuisance or distress should be reported to your local council.
If it relates to a single unacceptable noise incident please call 101.
Abandoned vehicles - We are only responsible for dealing with abandoned vehicles if they are on a road causing an obstruction or danger, or if you believed they may be lost or stolen. In this case please call 101.
If you've made enquiries with your neighbours, no one knows who the car belongs to and you think it's been abandoned you can report it to your local council who should be able to trace the vehicle’s owner and arrange for it to be removed.
Driveway obstruction - Vehicles causing an obstruction to a driveway can only be removed by us if there is a dropped kerb in place, and the vehicle is being prevented from leaving the driveway. We will not attend a report of obstruction where a vehicle is unable to get onto a drive/parking area.
Anyone with information about a crime in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland can call Leicestershire Police by dialing 101 (calls cost 15p) or call Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
