Bristol City Councils Streetscene Enforcement Team are getting tough on people who fly-tip at supermarkets. The authority complains that recycling bins at supermarkets throughout Bristol have become a dumping ground for household and commercial waste. Tescos supermarket at Eastville was one of the sites that succumbed to fly-tipping. After attempts of warning signs against fly-tipping failed, the council used its enforcement officers to carry out covert surveillance operations on potential culprits. During these operations, the team witnessed several offences of fly-tipping and littering. Fines of £75 were issued to 11 people. Executive member of neighbourhoods councillor Judith Price said: Fly-tipping at these sites makes them look a mess and can put off the responsible residents of Bristol from taking their waste there to be recycled. By carrying out these surveillance operations across the citys fly-tipping hotspots, we are giving a very clear message to potential offenders that if they dump rubbish, they risk being caught and prosecuted. The council warn that they will be taking a tough line and fining anyone they catch fly-tipping and littering.
