A Sunday walker has called me to say that a new load of fly-tipping has been dumped on the bend on Bradmore Lane almost blocking the road. Apparently there is space for a car to get through, but the local walker is reporting it to police and the council as a hazard. If anyone walks that way and is able to take a picture, please post in this thread. Thanks

Bit of a mess at the top of Bulls Lane this morning. There is another pile of rubble further down the road towards Thunder Bridge.

If the council is going to charge the non-fly-tippers 35 a year for disposing of our garden waste, it needs a plan for dealing with those who choose not to pay and find other means. I don't see why those of us who cough up should have to put up with this. Photo taken at junction of the BOAT Green Lanes with West End Lane north of Wildhill.

...of course, it is possible that the nearby borough of Enfield, where this is an epidemic, is now totally full of fly-tipped waste, and they're looking further afield.

Just walked along West End Lane north of Wildhill and spotted 17 black bin bags of rubbish in the hedgerow on the north side of the lane between the two bends from Green Lanes to the Essendon BOAT. It looks like someone has driven along while someone else has chucked the bags into the hedgerow at regular intervals. It amazes me what sort of animals does this sort of thing while so many in the community recycle and do their best to take responsibility for the planet. Reported to WHBC. One of the 17 pictured below.

There is an abandoned caravan on the east side of West End Lane, Wildhill between The Woodman and The Candlestick. I have reported it to the council.

That will take you some time to illustrate on your fly tipping map.

I gave up updating the map some time ago, Larry. It became 1) too much work, and 2) too depressing.  :(
