Foiling flytippers

Typical flytipping at Braypool Lane
CCTV cameras captured six separate incidents of flytipping in one night which has enabled the council to send the offenders fixed penalty notices totalling more than £600. Flytipping is a criminal offence and if caught, people can expect a fixed penalty of £300. Failure to pay can lead to prosecution, a criminal record and an unlimited fine.

The flytippers were all dumping trade waste. The kinds of things being tipped included builders’ and plumbing waste and other packaging.

Businesses have to make their own arrangements for waste disposal and those discovered using council bins will receive a fine of £110.00 and could face prosecution.

The council is not releasing details of the locations until the deterrent has had the desired effect as offenders may move on to other sites in the city.

They can't say they weren't warned: Flytippers beware
