Neighbourhood Community Wardens Find Fly Tipping

Whilst out on routine patrol in the Warley ward Lee Ackroyd & Ray Jackson  from the North & East Neighbourhood team came across a large amount of fly tipping on Raw End Road, Norton Tower.

They stopped to investigate for any evidence that may have been left in the waste along with taking pictures to send into Environmental Health to be followed up.

Whilst investigating a few local residents from the area stopped to chat about the continued problem fly tipping is in the area and said it was refreshing to see them out dealing with the problem.

So quickly as they noticed it has only been recently fly tipped the same day. They were told by Lee & Ray that there was going to be extra patrols in the area in the coming weeks due to this happening.

If you notice any fly-tipping, you can report it via the Calderdale Council website or call 01422 288002. Your local Community Wardens can then investigate and take appropriate action.
