That's the exasperated call from a Middlesbrough ward Councillor in the face of mindless fly-tipping and anti-social firework ‘displays'.
Councillor Joan McTigue, who represents Longlands & Beechwood ward, said the problems were worse than ever both under lockdown, and in the run-up to Bonfire Night and beyond.
Calling on local residents to identify those responsible, and on parents not allow their children access to fireworks, she said it was time to turn the tide.
She said: "Fly-tipping's always a problem, but it seems to be worse than ever at the moment when Council resources are stretched to the limit.
"It shows breath-taking selfishness and a complete lack of consideration both for the local community and for the environment.
"Why should our Council Tax pay to clean up the mess - and that's not to mention the fires that could put lives at risks.
"Someone must see who's responsible - action will be taken if they can be identified, so I'd urge anyone with information to get in touch.
"The fireworks are beyond a joke as well - they've been going off day and night for ten days, and long beyond Bonfire Night.
"The really loud ones will wake sleeping babies, terrify domestic pets and be quite traumatic for those suffering with mental health issues.
"I'm all for celebrating at the right time and place, but only with due consideration for other people.
"There's just no excuse, and it's only a matter of time before someone is badly hurt."
Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said he fully supported Cllr McTigue's stance: "The scourge of fly-tipping blights communities and we're doing all we can to stamp it out.
"Those responsible are selfish and stupid, and can expect to end up with a hefty fine and even a criminal record - but we need people's help to identify them and hold them to account.
"Fireworks are great at the right time and place - but Covid put paid to Bonfire celebrations for this year, so I'd urge people to show consideration for those around them, and wait until next year."
