 Published on: 13th March 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Watford Borough Council are appealing for witnesses after over 100 tyres were dumped in Chester Road. 

The fly-tip site was discovered next to, an in a property that is under construction on Tuesday, March 5 at 1.30pm near to the junction with Harwoods Road.

Phil White, senior environmental crime officer, said: “This fly tip is significant and unusual for Watford. It is in such a residential area we are hoping someone remembers something. 

“The offenders may have used a vehicle, so we are checking all the local CCTV and have worked with the land owners to get clearance. 

If anyone knows anything, please call us on 01923 278503 or email envhealth@watford.gov.uk 

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, added: “Fly-tipping is an offence and we will take immediate action against people who think they can get away with it. 

“Our residents are really concerned when they see dumped rubbish polluting our communities. It harms our environment, attracts vermin and can be a health hazard. 

“It costs the council many thousands of pounds a year to clear up, meaning residents are paying to dispose of other people’s unwanted rubbish. 

“Every Watford resident has a duty of care to dispose of their waste properly – or if they give it to someone else for disposal, to ensure they are a registered carrier of waste. 

“The dedicated environmental crime team investigate all reported offences and have successfully prosecuted many perpetrators. These cases have resulted in fines and even imprisonment.”
