Fly Tippers Face City Legal Action

Back in May, a witness watched a Lorry and loaded with rubbish and its driver dumping Garbage near the boundary with Staffordshire. She was sharp enough to take the details and photos, even a short video clip.

I reported the matter to City of Wolverhampton Environment officials. They gave the offending Wolverhampton company a Fixed Penalty Notice of £400. I understand that this penalty has not been paid, so the Council will now be instigating legal proceedings.
My very grateful thanks go, to the resident who has performed a civic duty, to allow the case to be developed. Your witness statements are the difference. We really do need to ensure that we capture these individuals who cause so much damage to our environments, and loads Counciltax payers and others with the cost of removal of their garbage.
