Building materials dumped in a lane

First published in News

TAXPAYERS face a bill of about £450 after a shed, paving slabs and tins of paint were dumped in a secluded lane.

They were left off Overthorpe Road in Banbury between 11.30am and 3.30pm last Monday. Cherwell District Council said a Ford Transit Tipper was seen in the area.

Lead member for clean and green Nigel Morris said: “Irresponsible contractors might save money by not disposing of items properly but all residents in the district pay the price. Fly-tippers tend to look for secluded spots, making it difficult for us to catch them, so I would urge anyone who sees suspicious activity to report it.

“Disposal of building waste ought to be carried out by a licensed operator, otherwise it could be illegal.”

Cleaning up the fly-tip is expected to cost the taxpayer in the region of £450.

Anyone with information about fly-tipping should call customer.service@cherwell-dc.gov.uk or 01295 227983.
