Eviction risk for Scunthorpe housing estate residents who toss scraps out of windows
Residents on a Scunthorpe housing estate have been warned they could risk eviction from their homes if they continue to throw food scraps out of their windows and over balconies.
The warning was issued by North Lincolnshire Homes (NLH) after offenders were traced to the Earls Walk area of the town.
Offending tenants have also been reminded not to dump rubbish in and around their homes and to clean up the mess if their dogs foul the area.
NLH housing officer Paula Crawford has told residents in an open letter that the offences present "a serious health and safety risk" and could attract vermin to the neighbourhood.

Mrs Crawford added: "North Lincolnshire Homes treats this as a serious breach of tenancy and further action will be taken by us against anyone either living or visiting the Earls Walk area involved in disposing of items in this way."
Breaches of tenancy can result in eviction.
The letter goes on to warn people about clearing up dog mess and says it is not acceptable for owners to allow their dogs to use the upper walkways as a toilet area.
