Needles Found Among Town Fly Tipping
6:53am 22nd August 2013
Pirate FM has found needles littering back streets in Camborne.
We have been out with officials, police and fire crews clearing up fly tipping in the town.
They say it has caused a spate of arson attacks among other things.
Now they are warning there will be a crackdown on people who break the rules.
Michelle Cowie, the Council’s Public Health and Protection’s Environmental Enforcement Officer said: “There have been long term issues with certain back lanes in Camborne for a number of years with these areas being used as a place to dump unwanted household items and waste.
"We wish to educate residents about their responsibilities. Fly tipping is a criminal offence and one that is taken seriously. Any one caught fly-tipping will be prosecuted which can lead to either a heavy fine or imprisonment if found guilty."
Paul Daddow, Contract Compliance Officer for the area from Cornwall Council’s Waste Management Service said: "The aim of the event is for Cory to carry out a one off clearance of the identified lanes with Enforcement Officers on hand to explain to the residents their responsibilities regarding the disposal of rubbish, especially large bulky household items.
"We are grateful to Cory for carrying out this one off clearance and urge residents to keep their local community clean and clear of unsightly dumped rubbish.”6:53am 22nd August 2013
