Photo: Unwanted furniture dumped on Botanic Road Southport
Someone has dumped a large sofa and a table on the pavement outside the shops on Botanic Road, Churchtown.
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.
