What a tip! Can you name the fly-tippers who left this disgusting scene?

Staffordshire | News | Published:

Fly-tippers who dumped household waste around two Staffordshire villages are being hunted down by the council.

Stafford Borough Council is appealing for witnesses after household waste was dumped at two separate locations.

Its Grime Watch initiative - which aims to shame those who inresponsibly leave their rubbish in public places - is hoping to identify two piles of mess left in Eccleshall and Chebsey Village.

The assorted waste has been thrown in the Wooden bus stop in the centre of Chebsey consisting of various boxes of wiring, a BBQ, a white radiator, various household items and a distinctive red t-shirt - which translated means 'I don't speak Icelandic'.

Meanwhile, in Cotes Heath, Eccleshall, the mixture of household and builders waste include two white painted doors, a toilet and cistern, a blue children's pool, white garden chair, wood and packaging.

Both items were dumped at some point last month.

And now, the council is urging anyone with any information to come forward and contact the authority.

William Conaghan, spokesperson for the cStafford Borough Council, said: "Clearing up after people who have illegally dumped unwanted items is costly to the council tax payer and it is unsightly for our area.

"People who are proud of where they live want to see the inconsiderate minority punished for using the borough as a tip for their rubbish.

"We'd urge anyone with information about the fly tipping to contact us and we will not hesitate to fine or prosecute those responsible."

Grime Watch was relaunched by Stafford Borough Council and the Express & Star last month in attempt to catch the culprits behind the crimes.

Previous images shared show a road off New Road, Hixon, littered with grass the cuttings and garden furniture including a metal swing and chairs were illegally dumped on a public footpath in Rickerscote.

People with information can contact the council in confidence by calling 01785 619401.

In its efforts to shame those who dump their rubbish in the countryside instead of taking it to tips the council is to continue posting pictures on its website.

Pictures will be added to www.staffordbc.gov.uk/grimewatch when new cases of fly-tipping are discovered by the council.
