Appeal to identify flytipper caught on camera

Appeal to identify flytipper caught on camera
Published on 24 May 2021 Print

Do you recognise the man pulling the trolley on this image who it is believed is responsible for tipping this waste? 

Walsall Council has launched an appeal to identify the person who has dumped stable waste on The Lea, Goscote Lane on several occasions earlier this year. As well as the Council having to deal with the removal of this waste, the flytipped rubbish can have a detrimental impact on the local environment and wildlife. 

Councillor Garry Perry, Deputy Leader for Resilient Communities, Walsall Council said, “Flytipping is unacceptable and our officers work really hard to identify those responsible for flytipping as well as clearing it up. Ultimately we need evidence such as images captured on CCTV cameras or eyewitness reports.

"In this instance, the camera has captured images of an individual flytipping but we now need the public to help us identify this person, who still continues to tip waste seen as recent as last week! When will it finally sink in with some people that we will not tolerate this. We will pursue and seek out those responsible and use all means available to bring them to justice.”

“There are many ways to dispose of waste responsibly including the Household Waste Recycling Centres at Fryers Road, Leamore, and Merchants Way, Aldridge, which are free of charge - there is simply no excuse.”

If you recognise this person and can help us to find him, please contact the Community Protection team on 01922 653060 or by email to communityprotection@walsall.gov.uk quoting reference WK/202106568. Please do not share names or personal details in the public domain of any person you think this may be responsible.

If you provide information that leads to a successful prosecution, you may be eligible to claim a £500 reward.
To request the removal of flytipped rubbish from council land where you have not eye-witnessed it being flytipped, please call Clean and Green on 01922 653344.
