Appeal for information over Telford flytip

By Sophie Madden | Telford | Crime | Published:

A pile of rubbish has been fly-tipped on a rural road on the outskirts of Telford.

Telford & Wrekin Council is asking for information about the fly-tip at Cluddley, which was discovered this morning.

Among the pile of rubbish are screwdrivers, other tools, mattresses, fabric, pictures and what appears to be a lawnmower.

In June of this year, Telford & Wrekin Council's cabinet approved a new approach to all forms of environmental enforcement, of which fly-tipping is part.

The council has trained around 40 current members of staff in a number of new powers.

But it says it is not just about fines and it wants to reduce fly-tipping all-round through education.

Since the start of the campaign, one man has been prosecuted and has been fined £800.

A total of 10 fixed penalty notices have also been handed out.

The fine for fly-tipping is £400. Failure to pay could lead to an unlimited fine and or imprisonment

Anyone with information is asked to call the council on 01952 384384, or email recyclefortelford@telford.gov.uk
