The council’s war on fly-tippers continues with the release of another video of people caught on camera who are suspected of illegally dumping waste in the borough.

The town hall’s ‘Wall of Shame’ campaign aims to tackle the issue by informing people about how to get rid of their bulky waste legally and also calls on residents to name and shame suspects.

The ninth episode, released today, features suspects in Shafter Road, Dagenham and the Dagenham Heathway area including someone urinating on a bin store and the second appearance of a woman who uses a buggy to dump her rubbish.

Councillor Margaret Mullane, cabinet member for enforcement and public safety, said: “We will continue to do everything in our power to take action against these people who think they are above the law and use our streets as a rubbish tip.

“This isn’t about grassing people up it’s about making people proud to live here. If you don’t tell us, we can’t do anything about it.”

Councillor Syed Ghani, cabinet member for public realm, added: “It’s great that this series is reaching a lot of people – that means our chances of catching these fly-tippers are even greater.

“It’s just one aspect of the proactive approach we’re taking to cutting out fly-tipping in the borough, if you’re looking for more I suggest heading over to the Wall of Shame.”

Last year, Barking and Dagenham Council spent more than £380,000 of taxpayers’ money on clearing up fly-tipped rubbish.
