Once again fly tippers have left their mark in Wyke Lane, Scarisbrick, near Southport. Dozens of car tyres have been dumped by the side of the road.
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 free tyre skip at Southport Re-cycling Centre just half a mile down the road at Kew.
