Flytippers Beware…

3 Comments

The Council’s Clean Streets (Enforcement) Team is continuing to work hard at combating environmental crime within Lewisham Borough. There is constant proactive enforcement activity taking place around all parts of the borough with a recent weekend waste operation being very successful in catching offenders in Catford, Deptford, Forest Hill, Lewisham & Sydenham.

Since 1st August 2015 over 100 individuals (including business owners) have been fined for waste offences committed borough wide. Officers have also issued more than 20 fines for fly-posting offences committed at various locations. Last week a major serial fly-tipper who had been blighting the Brockley Environment with his criminal activity was found guilty of fly-tipping at Bexley Magistrates Court and sentenced to a fine & costs just short of £3500.

  1. Are you able to take enforcement action against companies/individuals that fly-tip on private land? I’ve had a couple of instances recently where vans have tipped a load of rubbish into the car park of my block of flats. I managed to get registration numbers both times but only managed to get photographic evidence on one occasion.
