‘Stinking’ mound of rubbish dumped next to road near Calverton

Bookmark

A ‘stinking’ mound of rubbish has been discovered by the side of a road near Calverton.

The dumped rubbish was discovered in a car park on the Oxton Bypass.

A picture of the flytipping was taken by Paul Storey, who spotted the mound whilst walking his dogs. He has reported the incident to local Gedling Borough councillor Boyd Elliott.

It is now being established which council would be responsible for the clearing, with some of the area being covered by Gedling Borough Council and other parts falling under Newark & Sherwood.

Mr Elliott said: “Flytipping is removed at a considerable cost to local councils and can be reported directly.

“Gedling and Newark & Sherwood both have dedicated teams which is a sad sign of the times.

“Licensed waste removal companies will accept BACS payments.”

“I would advise anyone that is approached by waste removal operatives to request to have sight of their license.”
