Fly-tipping on an Ipswich estate has caused a frustrated resident to lodge a complaint against the town’s council.
Paul Miller, of Emmanuel Close, in Chantry, claimed a fridge freezer, settee, and office chair were dumped in a car park within the area in January.
The 62-year-old reported the issue to Ipswich Borough Council at the start of February and the items were collected by the council last week.
An official complaint has now been raised with the council for the time it took to deal with the problem.
Mr Miller said fly-tipping had got worse in recent months and he was worried that it would encourage more people to leave their unwanted goods in the street.

“It’s just a shambles,” Mr Miller added. “Fly-tipping happens now and again, but this is the worst I have seen it.”
Mr Miller is now calling for the council to install a CCTV camera or a sign warning people not to fly-tip.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman confirmed it was investigating a complaint from Mr Miller.
When the council receives a report of fly-tipping in a communal area it has to wait two weeks before it can remove the items to allow time to consult with residents in the area.
