Once again we’ve been called to remove fly tipping in the Wrexham area – this time at Corkscrew Lane in Pentre Bychan.
There was also a similar number of bags in another lay-by – all neatly bagged and just dumped for us to remove.
The trouble is removing it costs money. We have to send a team to not only remove it, but also to see if it contains any identifying items such as letters or packaging labels, so we can tackle the offenders.
The person who reported it described it as “A sad world that we live in today when people can do this on a lovely country lane” – and we couldn’t agree more.
If you know who the offender is, please contact us on 01978 298989 – any information you give us will be treated in confidence.
“It beggars belief”
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, said: “The sad part of this is that whoever dumped this rubbish had to drive to the area – why couldn’t they have taken a little bit more time and trouble and taken it to one of our Household Recycling Centres?
“It beggars belief that they go to this much trouble and risk a court appearance and a hefty fine, rather than dispose of it properly.
“I urge anyone who has any information about this or other fly-tipping to come forward and help us stop those who prefer to blight our lovely communities with their waste.”
