Flytippers Warned of Serious Fines If They Continue

Bromley Gardens, Houghton Regis
Flytipping in Bromley Gardens, Houghton Regis has become a serious problem according to some local residents. A concerned resident has said, "We have repeated rubbish dumping by the garages near my house. Almost weekly a large collection of rubbish appears and is seems to be added to by the residents. A van appears to collect it once it's reported, but it's an eyesore, and is dangerous in the meantime."

A Luton man was successfully prosecuted by Central Bedfordshire Council under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 earlier this month {details  link*} and had to pay over £1200 in fines and costs.

A statement on Central Bedfordshire Council's website states: "Fly-tipping is a serious environmental problem and can pollute the land it is on and any nearby waterways. Flytips make an area look neglected and spoilt, they also attract vermin such as rats and other pests. The sooner we hear from you on 0300 300 8302, the better."
