Barking and Dagenham CCTV Appeal Episode 11Tags Adults , Residents

One of Barking and Dagenham council’s most potent weapons against fly-tipping has returned this week, with the release of the 11th episode of the CCTV Appeal.

 

Part of the council’s Wall of Shame, the web-series, which was recently featured on BBC London News, has clocked up over 20,000 views and seen 15 fines issued to fly-tippers. 

 

Council gets tough on fly-tippers

 

Items seen fly-tipped in the latest episode include shoe racks, lamps, TVs and even a bookshelf.

 

The episode also features the return of a woman caught illegally dumping several times in the series so far, as well as a man spotted fly-tipping twice in the same day.

"We all want to live in a clean borough"

Cabinet Member for Enforcement and Community Safety, Councillor Margaret Mullane, said: “It’s always such a shame to see these incidents of fly-tipping, we all want to live in a clean borough.”

 

“No one wants to see people littering our streets, that’s why we’re calling on residents to help us with our fight on fly-tipping.”

 

“If you know someone featured, then please get in touch immediately. We can’t clean this borough up by ourselves, the community needs to come together and help us.”
