At the end of last week, domestic furniture and junk appeared outside a house in Lower Galdeford. Around the sound time, household goods were dumped on the Eco Park. There is good reason to believe that these two incidents are linked.
I have asked Shropshire Council to investigate with a view to prosecution. I would be grateful if any with knowledge of these incidents could share it with me or the council in confidence.
Fly-tipping on the Eco Park is commonplace but no less appalling for that. It is rare for so many household items to be dumped on a street, let alone on of the primary routes to the town centre.
I have asked for both sites to be cleaned up.
Fly-tipping is a criminal offence. I hope that all efforts will be made to find and prosecute the perpetrator. If the householder managed to transport some of the rubbish to the Eco Park, there can be no excuse for not taking it to Craven Arms.
I am appalled by all fly-tipping and littering. We have a beautiful town and stunning landscape. We should not wreck it with rubbish.
You can report fly-tipping on Shropshire Council’s website. This is a basic website interface that does not allow for photographs to be uploaded. The independent website Fix My Street is easier to use. You can report potholes and other problems on this site too.
