South Staffs Council hits out at fly-tippers

South Staffordshire District Council has urged members of the public to report fly-tippers after more rubbish was found dumped on public land.

A large amount of waste was found in Great Checkhill Lane near Enville at the weekend in what’s the latest in a string of incidents the local authority has had to deal with.

Deputy Leader, Councillor Roger Lees, has vowed to catch those responsible and is encouraging people to dispose of rubbish responsibly over the festive season.

The council says fly-tipping tends to increase over Christmas, despite it being a crime which can lead to a fine of up to £95,000 for individuals and up to three years in prison.

Cllr Lees said: “Fly-tipping is a real blight on the countryside and we are doing everything we can to track, investigate and prosecute offenders.

“As you can see, this recent episode has caused a terrible mess and we are keen to find out who’s responsible so we can take the necessary action.

“I would urge anyone who seen anything or has information about it to please get in touch with us.”

Members of the public can report fly-tipping by calling 01902 696 200 or via the council's website at
