Bonfires and fireworks
Most household items can be recycled, or disposed of, at our recycling centres so there should be no need to burn items in gardens.
In addition, many items that tenants previously burnt in bonfires were carcinogenic and harmful to people and the environment.
Tenants who light fires that are lit continuously may be referred to Environmental Health.
We encourage our tenants and their families to go to organised firework displays.
However, if you want to set off small fireworks in your garden please contact your neighbours first to let them know. They can make sure their pets are inside. You should consider the effects of letting off fireworks before you do so.
