Fcuk me, not again! They're obviously not scared of the councillors. As you say f all gets done because it's too easy to pay a contractor to pick it up and bill the council (the council tax payers) for it yet again.

I wonder if the local plods been called in or is there something even more fishy going on?
This happens frequently and each time the council hires a contractor to pick up the mess left behind.
As we've said before the council have had many opportunities to install cctv and catch them in the act yet sod all has been done.
Is there a cosy little arrangement between our wonderful council and the collection firm?
I know we wont be told.

volunteers needed.


If you’re in Romford Market on Friday, you’ll be able to meet our  Environment Team about our Cleaner Havering campaign. As well as giveaways, they will be able to answer questions on the impact that litter has on our borough and wildlife. You’ll can also pick up information about our Community Green & Clean-up project, which is seeking volunteers to help keep an open space smart and tidy on a regular basis.
Revolutions are always verbose.

And you'll also be able to run the gauntlet of picking up a hefty parking fine, that's why I won't go anywhere near the place but good luck to all who wish to take the chance.

Fly-tip clean up in Upminster road costs £30,000


The cost to taxpayers of removing rubbish dumped at a notorious fly-tip hot spot has reached an estimated £30,000 within a few weeks.


Three fly-tip incidents have blocked Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster, in the past month, and an estimated 100 tonnes of rubbish – some contaminated with asbestos – had to be cleared.

A huge pile of waste, described by a council spokesman as “contaminated waste almost burning at its centre”, was dumped on the countryside lane over the bank holiday weekend.

This came shortly after another tip, composed of seven heaps of wood and grey ashes, was cleared, costing £10,000.

The latest fly-tip – which was being dealt with yesterday (Thurs) – required the council to call in specialist contractors to assess the nature of the waste before it could be disposed of.

It is estimated it will cost the council another £10,000 to clean up.

Earlier this month, a fly-tip containing asbestos was cleared at the same spot, costing £11,000.

A man, who asked not to be named, estimated around 100 tonnes of rubbish had blocked the road over the past fortnight.

The man, who said he had seen a transit van tipping rubbish on the countryside lane, has contacted the council and passed on the vehicle’s registration number.

“We are paying for this and this is money that could be spent on libraries and schools. This is criminal,” he said.

Cabinet member for the environment Cllr Osman Dervish said: “These are organised criminals who are part of a very sophisticated operation. We are working closely with the police and other agencies to bring these people to justice.”

He added the council will press for “serious punishment from the court” for the person identified as driving the reported van.

So thirty grand of our money has been chucked down the drain clearing the Gurpins lane mess up.
Why doesn't Dervish finally get off his arse and get CCTV installed?
This equates to circa 300 parking fines at £120 a pop.

Lucrative work if you can get it, I wonder who the 'council approved contractor' is?

Judging by the photo in the Recorder Mr A I'd say that's more rubbish than a Transit van could hold.
Unless of course he did more than one drop.

on my way to Ightham mote house (well worth a visit) this morning I see a huge pile of rubbish outside the side gate of the Jewish cemetery and as if by magic on my return it had been cleared, well done.
If we learn from our mistakes, why aint I a genius, If you educate the masses where's the advantage for the few?

Good idea HH.
Perhaps this punishment could also be extended to our wonderful council who fail to stop fly-tipping from happening.
