The GRID – A target for Fly Tipping?

Grid residents are warned to keep a watch out for Fly tippers. This follows an incident, pictured, in the middle section of Trentham Street near the junction of Lavenham Road sometime overnight on 26/27th February.

Councillor Guy Humphries was contacted and he reported the incident to a specialised unit on Wandsworth Council asking them to have the mess removed as a priority. The rubbish was cleared away on the morning of Thursday 28th February. Thank you Councillor Humphries.

Cllr. Humphries said that people should decline offers from ‘rubbish clearance’ types, usually bogus, who offer to clear rubbish from your front garden for a cheap cash price. Invariably the rubbish is later dumped under the veil of darkness at some blind spot on a Grid Street or elsewhere.

Residents spotting this activity are warned not to intervene, carefully try to take note of the vehicle registration number and if possible details of the vehicle, make, colour and those dumping the rubbish.

Telephone 101, as you should get a quicker response and report the matter. If you recognise the items of builders rubbish ‘fly tipped’ and have an idea of who did this, notify the Council or Police

Keep vigilant, if the fly tippers get away with it, they may return and next time it may be your house or business that will be fly tipped.
