Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste management at Hull City Council, said: “Fly-tipping is an extremely anti-social behaviour and has a hugely detrimental effect on our city. This waste has clearly been deposited without any concern for the impact it would have in the local neighbourhood.
“People should take pride in where they live and we encourage residents to report any instances of fly-tipping so that we can convict offenders in the hope of reducing this anti-social behaviour.”
Hull City Council currently spends more than £250,000 every year on cleaning up after fly-tippers. Over 2018/19 local authorities across England dealt with over one million fly-tipping incidents. An increase of eight per cent from the 998,000 reported in 2017-18.
