flytipping - keeping it under control
This unwanted fridge appeared on the road between Newton and Whittlesford in January. It was actually more dangerous than it might appear as bits of the door were strewn across the road at one point. I asked South Cambs to come and clear it away, along with some rubbish up at Heydon which proved a bit more problematic as it was dumped in a field so isn't as obvious to locate.. The council aims to collect within 3 days and you can report online by going to the South Cambs website and searching flytipping.
They do try to track down the culprits and prosecute but this isn't always possible, and the cost of keeping our roadsides and hedgerows free of discarded fitted kitchens and rubble comes out of the precept.
