MORE Fly Tipping!

Web Fly Tipping Carr Lane 27 Sept 09

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.

Thank you

A big thanks to the Council’s Waste Management Team for acting quickly in clearing the fly tipped debris in Tarran Way South and Lingham Lane.

The pic was sent to me this morning by a Moreton resident, and clearly shows the clean up operation.   What the Council really needs to do now is to put in place a system that deters, or catches the scum bags who fly tip in our community.  Thanks also to the Wirral Globe for spreading the message to the wider community.
