Barnet Borough Council 'disappointed' at flytipping in Daws Lane car park, Mill Hill

Times Series: Council 'dissapointed' after rubbish dumped in car park Council 'dissapointed' after rubbish dumped in car park

Barnet Borough Council has been left “disappointed” after discovering books, children’s toys and old clothes in a fly tipping hotspot.

The authority has taken steps to prevent litter louts abusing the Daws Lane car park, in Mill Hill - but the problem continues.

Last month, large recycling bins were removed from the site, which is opposite Etz Chaim Primary School, to deter people from leaving rubbish there - but two charity bins remain.

On Friday, a new heap of rubbish appeared, leaving users of the car park “horrified and disgusted”.

A statement from the council said: “It is very disappointing to still see this happening in the area.

“The owners of the final two bins have reassured us that they will be removed from the Daws Lane Car Park by the end of the week.

“The council will continue to monitor the site for the coming months and will act on any evidence provided, which helps to identify the offenders.”

"horrified and disgusted," they need to get out more.

Is disgusted your GO TO emotive word?

As usual Barnet's cost cutting is costing them more as they have no one to enforce environmental crime and the borough is back to a free for all dumping ground with no risk of being caught.

As I have commented previously, removing the recycling bins is a stupid way to attempt to solve the problem. It does not prevent fly-tipping. All it does is to leave an even larger area on which people can dump their rubbish.

How about installing a camera to catch the fly tipping culprits. They always manage to catch drivers in bus lanes.

No bus lanes in Mill Hill, so no need to worry about that.
