Fly tipping is always a problem in our community, and each year EHDC spends thousands of pounds clearing up and properly disposing of rubbish that has ended up being dumped on our roads and open spaces. The reality is that each of us as tax payers is covering this cost.
Horndean and the surrounding parishes do not miss out with recent problems, and enforcement action, including a mobile trailer, sofas and general waste.
In just the last few days a large pile has been tipped on Five Heads Road, photo below.
This pile of mixed rubbish will take a few hours to clear away with a contractor and the bill to organise, collect and dispose will be about £300 to £500. Given that this is a prolific problem, it is worth spending time to catch the fly tippers. Amongst this pile of rubbish were some CD’s, one packed full of a holiday a group of friends took to China in November 2007.
Time, then, for our community to go sleuthing and lets see if we can identify the people in the photo. This may then lead us to a list of locations this CD could have been, and hopefully to an address where some clearance work has taken place. I stress that there is no suggestion that the people in the photo below are responsible for the fly tipping, but it seems highly likely that they can help point us in the right direction of whoever has tipped the rubbish in this country lane.
If you have rubbish to clear please can you take it to one of the several tips that East Hants organises, and if you engage a contractor or rubbish clearance firm to take away rubbish for you then please carry out some basic checks to see if they are a reputable firm.
If you can help put me in touch with the group in the photo below so that we can see if they can help track down the fly tippers with us I will be very grateful and please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
13th January update: Excellent news. Further evidence was collected in the fly tip rubbish which has given very good leads and a full investigation is now progressing. The photograph referred to in this posting has been taken down as we do not need further public support at this time, and do not wish to draw inference that they are associated with the fly tipping. Thank you for the very strong interest and support in this matter to date and no Mr Richards, I dont think we can insert the fly tip waste in the specific location you suggest when we catch them, but it is a very appealing idea…
