CCTV and warning signs could be placed at a flytipping hotspot.
Hyndburn council has removed a large amount of rubbish on Clinkham Road in Great Harwood and enforcement action is now under way. It follows several recent incidents on the popular through road in recent weeks.
Great Harwood councillor Gareth Molineux said: “Once I received the complaint from a resident the waste was removed within 24 hours.
“The enforcement team visited the site and found evidence which could identify the person who tipped the waste and we aim to bring them to task.
“As we have noticed an increase in the number of incidents at this location, our enforcement officers will monitor the area over the coming months and also look into the possibility of erecting warning notices and use of CCTV cameras.”
Coun Paul Cox, cabinet member for environmental issues, said they take a ‘tough line on flytipping’ and warned residents they could be prosecuted if their waste is illegally dumped. He also advised people handing over their waste to check for a persons waste carrier licence and Duty of Care Note.
