North East Lincolnshire Council


Alleyways in North East Lincolnshire are privately owned, and the responsibility for keeping them clean is with all residents that back and side onto them.

We can only assist with alley clearance if the waste is a public health issue or if it restricts access for a disabled person.

Gated alleyways

To enquire about having a gated alleyway then please contact your ward councillor.


If you are reporting fly-tipping then please complete our Fly-tipping form. If fly-tipping is occurring and there is enough evidence, the Council can take enforcement action. But if the problem is general waste and the Council can’t identify an individual responsible, all residents of adjoining properties may be held collectively responsible. Please remember that alleyways in North East Lincolnshire are private land and the responsibility for keeping them clean lies with all residents that have access over them.
