It's a crime not to care!

Wednesday 9 August


This waste was fly-tipped by an ILLEGAL WASTE COLLECTOR and discovered in May on the access road between Co-operative Street and Institute Street, Stanton Hill. Through working with the Community Protection team, the Waste and Environment team and Police the investigation has resulted in a £400 Fixed Penalty being issued.

The Fly Tipping Fixed Penalty is a new power the authority took on earlier this year to help combat fly tipping across the district. Fixed penalty notices between £150 and £400 can be issued for small scale fly tipping offences as a way of deterring fly tippers and penalising those who engage in it.
