Fly tipping by the lorry load
Fly-tipping in Bradmore Lane reached a new scale this week with what appears to be a lorry load of household rubbish dumped in the gateway to a field.
A large load, including a sofa, chair, carpet, kitchen appliances and other evidence of a house-clearance have been tipped in a heap spreading ten metres square.
Tyre marks and the spread of the rubbish suggests that a tipping truck has been used - and was reversed well into the field - in this latest, and perhaps the worst, example of fly tipping in recent years. Bradmore Lane has become of the area's black spots for the disposal of household and garden waste.
The North Mymms Green Belt Society has regularly called on the local authority to take urgent action to limit the areas where people can illegally dispose of their rubbish.
Anyone who sees anyone fly tipping is urged to call the authority on 01707-357000 or, if the fly tipping is in the Hertsmere District, you should ring 020-8207-7480.
The Community Policing Unit at Hatfield Police station 01707 638100, would also like to hear from anyone who sees people fly tipping.
