Help wanted over fly-tipping


Can you help identify three people who may know about a fly-tipping incident in Anfield

Furniture and other items were dumped in garages in Richmond Park during the week starting 20 April. Efforts to trace those responsible have not succeeded to date.

Some of the fly-tipped furniture was traced to a flat in Kirkby and inquiries revealed that the daughter of an elderly man, who had moved into a nursing home, had paid for a “a man and a van” service to clear his flat.

She contacted the firm though a newspaper advert paying them £150 but the only contact details she had was via a mobile phone number.

CCTV images of the people who cleared the flat have now been released and people are being asked if they recognise any of them.

Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhood services, said: “Fly-tipping is not only anti-social and causes a nuisance to communities but there also costs which falls on council taxpayers.

“In this incident it cost £500 to remove the fly-tipped items and it costs us many thousands of pounds a year for similar situations – that is money we could better use on providing  or maintaining services.

“We understand that when people want to have furniture or other stuff cleared from homes they will often not know who can do this responsibly. The advice we would give is that businesses who act legitimately have a waste carrier’s licence and you should check that anybody offering this service is licensed. And Liverpool residents can also use the Bulky Bobs service to have some big household items removed from their homes for free.”

If you can identify the people pictured please contact the council’s streetscene services on 233 7029.
