Nine Cases of Fly Tipping in 7 Months!

During the first 7 months of this year I have had to report ten individual Fly Tipping offences to the City Council. all of which related to incidents in Wednesfield North.

Analysing the individual cases it’s clear that Wolverhampton Homes garage sites are the preferred sites of many of the fly tippers.

*2 cases reported in January
*4 cases reported in April
*1 case in May
*3 cases in July

Recently there has been a distinct change taking place.

Out of three cases in July I have reported, all three cases have had independent witnesses come forward with offers of help. Which includes photographic and video tape evidence against alleged Fly Tipping.

Currently there are two very live investigations taking place here in Wednesfield North. Which have included very serious detailed examinations. I am hopeful that these investigations will lead to a prosecution. But it’s still early days yet.

I will keep residents informed of the progress of these issues. If you do know who is fly tipping please let me know….
