A list of items most frequently fly-tipped in East Lindsey have been revealed by district council as part of its anti-littering campaign.
Electrical white goods are flytipped most often, followed by furniture and children’s toys. Next up is tyres and builders’ rubble.
Portfolio holder for the environment, Coun Steve O’Dare said: “Through our Responsible People Campaign we aim to highlight the extent of fly-tipping, littering and dog fouling in East Lindsey in an attempt to make litter-louts think again about their irresponsible behaviour and how it impacts on the lives of their neighbours and their family and friends.
“People may think that these offences do not affect anyone but they do – every Council Tax payer in East Lindsey has to pay towards the clean up process, the offences are also a blight on the landscape of those who live nearby, and dog fouling has well-documented health risks to people – especially children. Our message is clear – littering is unacceptable.”
