It also makes clear additional black bins bags will not be taken by collection teams and overfull wheelie bins will be left as well.

The video was created by Our Sheffield and has been shared on the Sheffield North East Neighbourhood Policing team's Facebook page.

Police said they were aware that the litter issues around Page Hall and Fir Vale cause considerable concern for local residents, adding they continued to work with Sheffield City Council on this issue.
