Bags of fly-tipped rubbish dumped in Shirebrook

Vehicle seized that was used in fly-tipping incident

We have used vehicle seizure powers for the first time to investigate a fly-tipping incident in Shirebrook.

One of our enforcement officers witnessed waste being deposited from a vehicle in Shirebrook in February. The vehicle was then seized with assistance from the Police, under Section 34B of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This resulted in successfully identifying those responsible who are now facing prosecution.

We have also purchased some new CCTV cameras to be deployed at fly-tipping hotspots across the District to catch offenders. This resulted in successfully identifying those responsible who are now facing prosecution and we have removed the waste.

We have a zero tolerance policy on fly tipping and we will take full action against those involved where possible. We encourage all members of the public to be vigilant and report anyone they see fly tipping as we have a dedicated enforcement team to deal with waste crime.
