Dumped asbestos removed

fly tipping down Bradmore Lane
Fly tipping cleared

Workmen clearing roofing, dumped by fly tippers along Bradmore Lane, have confirmed to one of this site's forum users that it was asbestos.

A comment posted in this site's forum reads:

"The asbestos was removed this morning. I drove down Bradmore Lane at 8.45am and they had wrapped it in thick plastic. I asked one of the men was it asbestos and he confirmed that it was. I can't believe that both the council and the police knew about it and yet it took four weeks to arrange for its removal but at least it has gone now."

Welwyn Hatfield Council, received numerous complaints about this latest incident of fly tipping from concerned residents.

Welwyn Hatfield Council has tips for people who see the results of fly tipping.

  • Do not touch the waste: flytipped waste can be dangerous - it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
  • Visually inspect the waste: try to determine what the waste consists of and how much there is.
  • Take note of its exact location: and also, whether it is in or near water.
  • Do not disturb the site: there may be evidence that could help identify the culprits and lead to their prosecution.
