With the war on fly-tipping heating up, Enfield Council would like any information on the man pictured (photo removed for legal reasons), shamelessly dumping a mattress on our streets.
If caught, the dumper will receive a £400 fixed penalty notice and if he refuses to pay, he will be prosecuted by Enfield Council.
The act happened on 2 February at 12.30PM in Palmers Road N11, close to the junction with Bowes Road, by the residential bins.
In January, Enfield Council announced a higher penalty charge for those caught dumping waste illegally, doubling the penalty from the previous £200. So far, six fly-tippers have already received the newly bumped-up penalty notice and the man caught on CCTV could be lucky number seven.
Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: "Enfield Council spends £4.5m each year cleansing our streets and there are plenty of ways of disposing of waste legally and responsibly in the Borough. There really is no excuse to dump junk in this way and I look forward to this man being caught and handed a fixed penalty notice.
"I would therefore appeal to anyone who has any information on the culprit to report him as soon as possible through our report a problem page."
Enfield Council is keen to clamp down on unscrupulous individuals and those who won’t organise bulky waste collections by going through the proper channels.
If you are having bulky waste picked up and disposed on your behalf, please make sure you ask to see the relevant Waste Carrier’s Licence, otherwise you too could be presented with a fixed penalty notice. Help Enfield in its efforts to be cleaner and greener.
Residents can report fly-tipping directly through the Council's website. Information on rubbish and recycling facilities can also be found online.
