Once again fly tippers have left their mark on Gordon Street, rubbish has been building up “in the same spot over a two week period” quoted a local resident.
Someone has dumped household waste and material not needed in renovation work.
A large amount of tipping is committed by people who simply can’t be bothered to take their rubbish to the local tip.
Rubbish that is dumped on private land is the responsibility of the landowner to clear it up – and pay for it.
Any person or company fly tipping waste is committing a serious offence potentially punishable by an unlimited fine and/or up to five years in prison dependant upon the type of waste involved.
They can also be made to reimburse the costs of cleaning up the tipped area.
One can’t understand the mentality of people when there is a Re-cycling Centre at Kew.
Cllr David Barton quoted:
“Once again a selfish individual or group has decided to dump their rubbish where they please with no consideration for anyone else.
