Individuals who allegedly fly-tipped fridges on the A52 near Wheatcroft Island have had their vehicle seized by Rushcliffe Borough Council officers and Nottinghamshire Police.
It follows several incidences of fly-tipping in the area, leading to the use of CCTV capturing those in the act during December 2018.
A white van linked to the fly-tipping was confiscated on January 11 on Grant Street in Nottingham.
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason said: “This successful seizure once again demonstrates the hard work of our Environmental Health team who identify vehicles involved with fly-tipping.
“As this case shows, we will use all of our enforcement powers wherever we can and seek to prosecute anyone who fly-tips carelessly to damage the environment in this way and blight any part of the Borough.”
Inspector Craig Berry, from Nottinghamshire Police said: “We take all fly-tipping extremely seriously and work with partners such as Rushcliffe Borough Council in this case to do everything we can to prevent and deter offending and take action when we can.”
“It is a particularly difficult offence to investigate, however the use of CCTV cameras, our work with partners and the use of all powers and tools available means we can seize vehicles where necessary.”
Those with information on fly-tipping offences should contact the Council via social media, over the phone on 0115 981 99 11 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
