Fly Tipping is a Curse!

The other day at the Scrutiny Committee, we looked at a report that highlighted Fly-Tipping here in the City . Residents in the 21 most fly tipped streets in the City have been written to giving them information around how to dispose of their waste legally, and reminding them that fly tipping is a crime.

Some of these streets have had cctv installed si the City can gather evidence of who is fly tipping. and we received confirmation that the City will use its enforcement powers. The ‘Shop a Tipper’ project is still live, if residents provide information that leads to a Fixed Penalty Notice they get a £100 reward.

These schemes are so useful, and I hope our residents – if they see Fly Tipping taking place here in Wednesfield – Report it immediately to the City Council or West Midlands Police.

Note for Readers- The Photo is just for example, and it was a period ago here in Wednesfield North.
