RESIDENTS of a street in Hoyland are becoming frustrated by the increasing amount of rubbish that is being dumped there.

People who live on Hawshaw Lane are seeing rising levels of fly tipping on a small bank behind bushes and fences on the road.

Some of the residents who live at the top of Hawshaw Lane have contacted the council's Neighbourhood Pride team to clear up the rubbish - but one said they haven't taken any action.

The man, who did not want to be named, said he had spoken to the Neighbourhood Pride team five times since the end of February.

He said: "It's ridiculous, they've got my name on their records and I've got in touch with them every couple of weeks or so since I first spoke to them.

"There are a lot of good people in Barnsley but unfortunately there are some bad people too and something needs to be done about it, but if you step forward and complain you're a fool because you'll soon have a brick fly through your window.

"I've spoken to councillors before about other issues and each time I've been ignored and it's not on."

Neighbourhood Pride said the problem is due to the location of the rubbish.

A council spokesman said: "We've been out to look at the rubbish and it can't be moved by us because it's on private land. It will have to be removed by the owner."
