Flytippers have been fined £1500 after being caught illegally dumping waste at Richmondshire recycling sites.

The District Council is using covert cameras at known trouble spots as part of a crackdown to catch people that unscrupulously dump rubbish at the local sites.

The cameras caught five cases – each resulting in a £300 fine for those responsible.  They were caught on camera dumping TVs, computer monitors, garden waste, fridges, a bed, carpet and toys.

“We urge residents to remember that it is their waste and therefore their responsibility to dispose of it correctly – if it’s found dumped they will be held responsible and could face a fine,” said Council spokesperson, Councillor Philip Wicks.

“Our cameras are watching known troublespots – and we will take action when they catch flytippers.”
