    This is a Strata problem , on one of our Levels in my building here in Sydney City we have "cages " or small storage cages for each unit.
    This is pratically half of the floor level.
    I have noticed "rubbish" or building materials etc that residents have left behind .
    Old wooden tables, chairs etc block all the aisles to the cages.
    Dust , etc everywhere

    This is a fire hazard , who can i complain to?
    I have told the Strata Manager repeatly as well as emailed him.
    He doesnt bother doing anything.

    Also i notice there doesnt seem to be any smoke detectors in this area ??
    Is there a NSW building inspection board ?

    Do you have a building manager at all? This sounds like Building manager work than strata manager. Ask him if he can notify the owners to remove it in x days or any items on the way will be donated to charity.

    Someone did that in mine. I left a note and when they still didn't action it I tossed it all out. It was mostly rubbish and stuff that wouldn't have been worth more than $50 but it annoyed everyone. The wrong thing to do? Probably.

    This is what my building manager did once. If someone is leaving rubbish/ personal belonging on common area, then be ready for things to be thrown away.

    No i need to report this building manager to the Sydney City Council.
    Im about to take pictures etc going through stairways fire e xits etc etc taking pics of rubbish, old mattresses etc and then sending them to SCC so hopefully some sort of inspector can come out to issue a fine.

    Slightly different whinge, but I hate it when people in units leave all their crap on the street when it's after council cleanup time.

    Is that pretty much Parramatta?
    Actually, I did catch the wrong train not that long ago, and had to ride from Merrylands through there somewhere to the mall, I do kind of remember heaps of crap on the street.

    Dear Darlinghurst Boy,
    have a friendly chat with Fair Trading,
    they will tell you how to let people know that 'this is your home and not a rubbish dump'
    Ask your insurer when the last time they conducted a risk assessment on your building?
    Is the dust 'lead dust' or 'asbestos dust'?
    eg. Fire escapes, hazards bla bla that should get them running.. fast!
    I hope this helps
    Cheers

    It was gross. That's why I don't venture out further than Ashfield. It smells like poor people.

    I'm not very familiar with the area and I didn't see who put it out there.
    What are the demographics there?
