When the tip is closed...

I never understand why some people think its ok to drive to the outskirts of our village and dump some household waste. This collection was photographed earlier this week in Broomheath Lane on the Waverton side. Its still there as I imagine the Council will not be able to respond very quickly. Disposal of Gas cylinders are a problem as even the Household recycling tip at Tattenhall will not take these and a trip to Chester is needed.
I know this is nothing like some of the fly tipping that was shown on TV recently but if we are not careful dumped rubbish can attract more.
In 2016/17 more than one million incidences of fly-tipping were dealt with by councils in England. The estimated cost of clearing up this waste was over £58 million.
Fly-tipping is a serious criminal offence for which you can be prosecuted. The courts have various powers available to them to tackle fly-tipping, including imprisonment, substantial fines of up to £50,000 ,orders to pay costs and an order to deprive rights to a vehicle used to commit the offence.
Obviously the dumping of the vacuum cleaner & gas cylinder are not in this league but why spoil our countryside, where many Tarvin residents are currently walking, when this rubbish could be taken to the tip when it re-opens.
