Dacorum Borough Council have cleared an extensive amount of rubbish in Hemel Hempstead after people continued to use the area as a dumping ground.
The Waste Services team got to work clearing the area in Bennetts End which had become an eyesore for residents.
The area of Kimps Way, including the rear of Bennetts Gate, houses on Bennetts End Road and Howe Road, had been used to dump mattresses, furniture, hardcore (bricks and rubble), wood, fridges and other household waste before a team from our Clean, Safe and Green department removed the unwanted rubbish.
After the continued dumping of rubbish, the council’s Environmental Enforcement Ream have now arranged for CCTV cameras to be installed to monitor the area and stop this from happening again.
The Enforcement Team will be paying close attention to the area and will take action against any offenders caught fly-tipping.
If offenders are found to be dumping waste, they can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £400 or prosecuted for fly-tipping which is a criminal offence under The Environmental Protection Act 1990.
