Keeping safe during fireworks season


We love fireworks season, but it comes with its dangers. Check out our top tips on how to help keep your community safe during this period.

  • Bonfires and fireworks are not permitted on Poplar HARCA land.
  • Don’t leave flammable items on balconies, outside blocks or in communal areas.
  • Bulky items, such as fridges and mattresses, pose a fire risk. If you have arranged a free collection from Tower Hamlets Council, keep items indoors until the agreed collection day and take them back inside if not collected.
  • Place bagged waste in the URSs or bins – not next to them.
  • Report ASB to Poplar HARCA. Criminal activity should be reported to the police on 101. In an emergency, always call 999.
