Bins in Valentines Park are under attack from fly-tippers.

On Monday (July 9) litter could be seen spewing out of the designated rubbish receptacles at Cranbrook Road, Ilford.

A Redbridge Council spokeswoman said this amount of garbage was not a regular occurrence but a more calculated act.

“This was not regular rubbish left by visitors to the park, this was an instance of fly-tipping,” she said.

The fly-tipped waste was cleared quickly and the area is now clean and tidy.

“The cleanliness of our open spaces is very important which is why the bins at Valentines Park are emptied seven days a week by Vision.”

Residents are encouraged to enjoy open spaces and green areas in Redbridge but are politely reminded to put any rubbish in the bin afterwards.

A sterner message is being given to fly-tippers and a council representative previously said: “We have a zero-tolerance approach to those who continue to flout the law and disrespect the borough’s people and environment.

“They face far heftier fines and penalties when we use the full weight of the legal system against them.”
