Local residents are angered by the amount of fly-tipping in the alleyway behind their homes
The louts have turned an alley into a dumping ground for stacked-up mattresses, washing machines, cardboard, discarded wood and other rubbish.
Outraged residents and families now say they've had enough – and some want to move and start a new life elsewhere.
Ibrahim Sawadogo, 32, said Woodgrange Road, Forest gate, east London, has become a tip over the last two years.
And he blamed drinkers and smokers zeroing in on the street from outside for the astonishing eyesore.
I am looking for a better place to stay, I've had enough
Mr Sawadogo said: "It's very bad – it's not safe or hygienic for anyone living around here.
"All the rubbish allows more people to come here to smoke and drink."
The furious local tenant said yobs have even turned the scene into a lavatory.
Newham Council said its fly-tip taskforce staff believe they have now identified the land owner
"Sometime you find s**t there as well," insisted Mr Sawadogo, who's lived there since 2009.
"People take advantage of the place so it's become a proper mess.

"You would not want to bring a child up here.
"A lot of people are moving out of this place.
"I am looking for a better place to stay, I've had enough."
His neighbour Majed Al-Haimi and his wife Hristina Ivanova said they have repeatedly complained to Newham Council but been told they could do nothing as the land was privately owned.
Mr Al-Haimi was so fed up with the growing blackspot on his doorstep he shelled out £60 out of his own pocket to clean up the area.
The council has since refunded the father-of-two.
"Even if it is private land the council is the authority that can force the law over landlords or private land owners to keep their lands clean and controlled," stressed Mr Al-Haimi.
‘Fly-tipping on private land is a constant problem’, says Newham Council
"They shouldn't be a source of problems for the neighbours and families who live around here."
Mrs Al-Haimi added: "It's just not good enough.
"It is not my job to stand down there in the street and watch what people are doing.
"We just want a clean street."
Newham Council said its fly-tip taskforce staff believe they have now identified the land owner in a bid to get action taken.
A council spokesman said: "Fly-tipping on private land like the alley behind Woodgrange Road is a constant problem for the council because the clearance of private land is primarily the responsibility of the landowner.
"If the council were to take responsibility for clearing all privately-owned land it would cost us millions of pounds and impact on our ability to deliver on other vital services."
