Redbridge Council’s Enforcement Team has removed eight fly-tips as part of a crack down on littering issues in Ilford.

Over a three day period in Woodlands Road, the officers also handed out two fixed penalty notices (FPN) for littering, a fine for dropping rubbish from a car and issued five notices forcing businesses to provide evidence of an official waste contract.

The team also gave out four formal cautions and delivered letters about how people should dispose of their rubbish.

Councillor Ross Hatfull, cabinet member for civic pride, said: “This is the type of work that goes on day in and day out across the borough.

“We’re hitting litterers and fly-tippers where it hurts – in the pocket and we’ll continue to do so until they change their ways.”

The operation follows similar work in Hobbs Mews, Seven Kings, earlier this month which saw 12 businesses served notices regarding their waste disposal.

Cllr Hatfull added: “We’re listening to our residents and we know people have had concerns about Woodlands Road and other areas.

“We put additional effort into making sure we use this intelligence to tackle problems at the root.

“The public has a huge part to play in the fight against fly tipping and I’d encourage everyone to report fly tipping and fly tippers to us so we can help make a real difference.”

If you have problems in your area that you wish to report you can contact the Enforcement Team at civicpride@redbridge.gov.uk or report online at www.redbridge.gov.uk/report.
