Wokingham Borough Council recently announced that thirteen tonnes of fly-tipping was cleared from an embankment on the A329M, by a team working on behalf of the Council. Working from the hard shoulder of the motorway, the team spent a week removing the five tonnes of dumped car tyres and eight tonnes of general litter. The clearance was timed to avoid morning and evening rush hours to minimise disruption on surrounding roads.

 

The clearance is part of the Borough Council’s crackdown on illegal fly-tipping. This crackdown involves ensuring residents and businesses (including home-based ones) understand it is their own legal responsibility to ensure their waste is disposed of correctly. Fly-tipping nationally has increased.

 

 

In line with this, Woodley Town Council compiled a list of fly-tipping ‘hotspots’ in the Woodley area which was presented at the recent Planning & Community Committee Meeting and has also been passed to Wokingham Borough Council.

 

The list of fly-tipping hotspots suggested by Members of the Council was:

 

  • The area around the bin at the footpath end of Nightingale Road
  • Along the footpath at the end of Nightingale Road
  • In the vicinity of Tesco Express in Hurricane Way
  • Around the Highwood area
  • Bideford Close – adjacent to 78-94 Hazel Drive
  • The car park next to Southlake supermarket
  • The entrance near to the children’s play area off Kingfisher Drive
  • The garage area off Rickman Close.

 

We would be grateful if local residents would contact us if there are any other areas that are fly tipping hotspots. Please email: admin@woodley.gov.uk or call 0118 9690356. We appreciate your support.
