Council war on fly-tippers continues with £400 fines handed out

THE COUNCIL clampdown on fly-tipping is continuing – with two more culprits each receiving a £400 fine.
Fly-tipped rubbish included numerous bags of household waste, children’s toys and even a chair and sofa.
Clklr Karen Shore, deputy leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council and cabinet member for environment said: “Our Regulatory Services teams are intensifying their efforts to clamp down on fly-tipping in the borough.
“There is absolutely no excuse for fly tipping, not only is it an eyesore on our environment and can potentially attract unwanted pests, but it is also extremely costly for the council to clear it up. We will take any steps necessary to find offenders and take robust action against them.”
If you discover illegal tipping of waste or see it being tipped, report it 24 hours a day on the Council’s website or ‘Report It’ app.
Anyone with footage or photographs of fly-tipping can email:
Residents are asked to provide as much information as possible, including:
• The date, time and location of the incident
• A description of what waste was fly-tipped
• Whether there were any other witnesses and their details
• How many people were seen to dump the waste and any distinguishing features or a description of what they looked like
• Details of any vehicles involved (make, model, colour and registration number).
