75 City Inspectors will be conducting targeted patrols to help catch people fly-tipping, give advice to neighbourhoods about how to dispose of waste correctly, and act as an on-street deterrent. We need your help to make this as effective as possible.
Cllr Richard Holloway said: “We are seeing more and more household rubbish, like microwaves, sofas and TVs being dumped on the streets. It’s alarming and it is just unacceptable.
People need to take greater responsibility for their rubbish. National laws mean we can only take action against fly-tippers if we catch them in the act or have evidence – so we need your help. We cannot continue to let this happen.”
You can use the Council's Report It site to report fly-tipping as well as the council’s environmental action line: 0207 641 2000.
