Wheelie bin fires in your neighbourhood

Alert message sent 05/03/2021 12:17:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Fire & Rescue

There has been a worrying spate of wheelie bin fires earlier this week in the Avenues and Beverley Road area of Hull.

Dozen of calls were taken to nine separate incidents overnight on Monday 1 March from concerned residents in Park Grove, Middleton Street, Berkeley Street and Dover Street amongst others.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service are working with Humberside Police and other agencies to identify those responsible using CCTV from our engines together with footage from Hull City Council's street cameras.

Thankfully this appears to be a one off night of anti social behaviour, but all agencies recognise that there have been issues in the Beverley corridor for some time. Police patrols and Fire Service 'drive-bys' have been stepped up recently to deter perpetrators.

Figures for the year on year secondary fires have been very encouraging during various COVID lockdowns. Incidents of this type in Hull have fallen by around 30% over the last 12 months. Excellent joint working with organisations such as Neighbourhood Network and our Arson Alert text line have helped with local intelligence to drive these numbers down.

Residents can report any issues in confidence and anonymously via What’s App to HFRS direct.

Text us on 07940 737141

To reduce the risk of being a target for these types of incident, please try and put your bin out on the morning of collection (not overnight), keep out of sight if possible at all other times and don't overfill or leave other waste items lying around.
