PhotoShore Road, Ainsdale

Unwanted household recycling rubbish still surrounds the recycling bins on Shore Road Ainsdale.

Rubbish that is dumped on private land is the responsibility of the landowner to clear it up – and pay for it (in this case its on Council land).

Ainsdale residents Colin Charnley said:

“Residents have been complaining to the Sefton Council since June 2015 about the state of this area, yet the mess is becoming worse, hopefully this may prompt them into doing something”.

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 dependent 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 Re-cycling Centre just half a mile down the road at Kew.
