Have your say

An area of woodland in Sheffield has been turned into a graveyard for old tyres.

Reader Barry Couldwell spotted what he said were at least 50 tyres dumped close to a water treatment plant at Wharncliffe Side.

He said he had reported the eyesore to Sheffield Council but ‘they don’t seem unduly concerned’.

Mr Couldwell is the latest reader to send in photos of litter and fly-tipping from across Sheffield as part of The Star’s campaign to highlight the rubbish blighting our city and encourage people to clean it up.

Please keep sending your photos and complaints about the city’s biggest grot spots as we continue to shine a spotlight on the ugly issue.

We’re also keen to hear about any examples of good work being done to tidy up the city, like litter-picking sessions and graffiti removal, as well as unsightly problems you think we ought to investigate.

To get in touch, please email robert.cumber1@jpress.co.uk.
