2.5 tonnes of fly-tipped rubbish collected in just one morning
4:42pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
THIS 2.5 tonne haul of sofas, mattresses, garden waste, children’s toys, TVs and more was picked up in just one morning after being dumped in a Colchester estate.
Within five hours they had picked up 2.5 tonnes of goods that had been illegally dumped rather than recycled properly.
The haul was gathered at a car park in Hawthorn Avenue before being sorted and either recycled or taken to Colchester’s tip.
Martin Hunt, councillor responsible for waste, said the problem was not restricted to Greenstead but was borough-wide.
