Kettering Borough Council continues to act on fly-tipping

Published: Thursday, 26th November 2020

An individual has been fined for fly-tipping in a rural location along Warkton Lane following an investigation by Kettering Borough Council Wardens.

The offence took place on Monday 26th October, and the individual was identified and given a fixed penalty notice of £300, which was reduced to £200 as it was paid within 10 days, by Wardens for fly-tipping household waste.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Council will continue to not tolerate any act of fly-tipping as it is a criminal offence which has a detrimental effect on the borough and its residents.

KBC wardens investigate reports of fly-tipping in partnership with other agencies, including Northamptonshire Police, and patrols will continue to take place to monitor the area.

Kettering Borough Council encourages members of the public to remain vigilant, particularly in our rural areas, and urge you to report any suspicious fly-tipping activity to us by calling 01536 410 333 or online at: www.kettering.gov.uk/flytipping

Shirley Plenderleith, Head of Public Services at Kettering Borough Council, said: “Fly-tipping not only blights neighbourhoods but costs time and money to remove it – resources that would be better spent elsewhere. Kettering Borough Council takes fly-tipping offences very seriously and will prosecute offenders where possible. I would urge anyone who spots fly-tippers to report it to the council on 01536 410 333 or online at www.kettering.gov.uk/flytipping
