This morning I was alerted by a moreton resident of another instance of fly tipping in Moreton, this time in Carr Lane (Thanks Jo). OK I know that the rest of the borough suffers with fly tipping from time to time, but here in Moreton, we seem to suffer more than anywhere else! Or is that just my perception?
Fly-tipping is an ongoing problem throughout Wirral, costing the local authority hundreds of thousands of pounds of Council Taxpayers money every year to clean-up. Illegally dumped waste is not only an eyesore, but it can damage land, watercourses and be harmful to the environment and the public who come into contact with it. Fly tippers blight the environment and are the scourge of our communities. We need to catch the culprits and make sure that we prosecute companies, and individuals who commit fly tipping offences until the message that we will not tolerate this envirocrime in Wirral is firmly understood.
