Dear Liverpool City Council,

An article in the Liverpool Echo dated 30 June 2016, about fly-tipped waste material at a disused rag yard in Birkett Street, stated that "the council has now stepped in to remove the waste."

Please advise:

1. The total cost to the council for the removal of this waste and generally cleaning and clearing the site.

Dear Liverpool City Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Liverpool City Council's handling of my FOI request 'Cost of removing illegally dumped waste from yard in Birkett St in July 2016'.

On 3 June 2020 I asked for details of the cost to the council of clearing up the illegally dumped waste in a yard in Birkett Street in 2016, and whether or not any of this cost had been recouped from the owner of the site.

Although I sent you a reminder on 4 July 2020 I have still not had a proper response from you, hence this request for an internal review.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Brian Abbott
