Truck used for fly-tipping is crushed

A truck linked to fly-tipping that was seized by Runnymede Borough Council has been crushed.

The vehicle was suspected of being connected with several recent fly-tips around the Chertsey area. The owner was given time to come forward but after no one claimed the vehicle it was crushed on Thursday (13 July).

Cllr Jonathan Wilson, Chairman of the Environment and Sustainability Committee at Runnymede Borough Council, was at Chobham Car Spares to see the truck destroyed.

"As a Council we are working hard to tackle fly-tipping," Cllr Wilson said. "Moments such as this, when the property of a fly-tipper is taken out of action, are very satisfying. Despite the excellent efforts of all involved to take this vehicle out of circulation, the fight against fly-tipping goes on. I'd urge anyone who sees incidents to contact us so evidence can be gathered. As a Council we've shown we 're working hard to tackle fly-tipping."

Continuing the crack down

If you witness fly-tipping, or have information about fly-tipping, record as much information as possible and contact Runnymede Borough Council's Environmental Health Team. More information is on the dedicated fly-tipping page.

The truck crushed on Thursday was seized in a partnership operation by the Council and Surrey Police at the start of June.
