Who's doing a roaring trade Connie?
The firm who's picking up all the shit left or someone in our beloved administration who may be on a kickback?

I was referring to the Phantom Fly-Tipper as the one doing the roaring trade, although others in the waste industry must also be earning well from his endeavours.

I'm confident however, that 'our beloved administration' is beyond reproach.

Early to bed for me tomorrow night and no supper for even suggesting otherwise.

Phantom fly-tipper steps up his activities.

Fly-tippers strike again in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster

The latest fly-tip in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster

Piles of waste have been damped yet again in one of the borough’s fly-tipping hotspots, bringing residents to the end of their tether.

Two loads of rubble have been found blocking the road in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster, early this morning.

Residents are exasperated with the regular tips, which have cost the council up to £30,000 within a few weeks this summer.

The industrial-sized fly-tips are now a regular occurrences in the countryside lanes.

“Words fail me now,” said one resident on social media.

Earlier this month, Havering Council said surveillance operations across the borough have started and will continue throughout this year.

A council spokesman said a surveillance operation carried out a few weeks ago could lead to four potential prosecutions and CCTV has also been planned and budgeted for the next financial year.


I'm almost t the point where words fail me! Never fear the council is on the case.

Re: Phantom fly-tipper strikes again.

Just been looking through the pages of this thread.

In June 2016 the council claimed to have spent £140,000 on clean-ups in the year to that date.
Since then, just ONE of the several offences was claimed to have cost £30,000.

Since then, there has been an increase in the frequency by the phantom fly-tipper so would anybody like to hazard a guess as to the total cost to local taxpayers from January 2016 to the present time?

Just to make it interesting, can anybody accurately predict when the phantom will strike again?

You could go to a spiritualist and ask him or her to contact Nostradamus on the astral plain to get the answer to that one Connie.
Joking aside how many incidents is that now in Little Gurpins Lane  since June last and how much has it cost to clear it all up?
I think some enquiries are in order.

The last post on page four, I predicted there would be another incident before the end of the month, but he appears to be outdoing even our wildest predictions.

Still, we must not despair, we have people of outstanding ability within the council ranks so these problems should be short-lived.

Fly-tipping could cost Havering Council £1million this year

The latest fly-tip in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster

Fly-tipping could cost the council up to £1million this year, the council has suggested.

The latest fly-tip in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster.
This comes as piles of waste have been damped yet again in one of the borough’s fly-tipping hotspots, bringing residents to the end of their tether.

Two loads of rubble have been found blocking the road in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster, early this morning.

Residents are exasperated with the regular tips, which have cost the council up to £30,000 within a few weeks this summer.

The industrial-sized fly-tips are now a regular occurrences in the countryside lanes.

A council spokesman said the council officially reported to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs fly-tipping was costing it £150,000 a year.

“However, this year the cost could be much higher - possibly 10 times as much,” the council spokesman said.

“Havering Council, like many other councils in London, is essentially victim of organised crime,” he added.

“Words fail me now,” said one resident on social media.

Earlier this month, Havering Council said surveillance operations across the borough have started and will continue throughout this year.

A council spokesman said a surveillance operation carried out a few weeks ago could lead to four potential prosecutions and CCTV has also been planned and budgeted for the next financial year.


A million pounds eh? That's a coincidence, that's exactly the same amount as the predicted revenue from the solar park. (which will only go ahead with public approval).
Havering's profit and loss accounts guestimated without the need for an accountant.

I've never met any either, but having seen the vast wages bill I assume we are paying for the best and getting the best that money can buy.

Ha f*cking ha!

An administration run by liars cheats con men and fraudsters is a victim of organised crime!

Latest bill from the Phantom Fly-Tipper.

Upminster 60 tonnes fly-tip removed with £15,000 cost for Havering taxpayers
15:00 25 January 2017
Chloe Farand (Romford Recorder)
 
The latest fly-tip in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster
A fly-tip, which blocked a country side lane, has now been removed - costing taxpayers £15,000.
 
The three load tip of contaminated waste was dumped on Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster, between Friday and Saturday.

It was estimated about 60 tonnes of waste were blocking the road and a team of specialists was called to remove it because it contained asbestos.
The waste has not yet been fully processed by the company but given the size and nature of the tip, it could cost Havering taxpayers as much as £15,000.
The lane has become a fly-tipping hot spot this year and the council previously told the Recorder, the cost of fly-tipping could cost the council more than £1million for the financial year 2016/17.
A council spokesman said: “It is vital that residents and businesses make sure that people taking away their building or general waste are licensed to do so and they obtain a receipt for the waste removed.
If we can identify where fly-tip waste has come from then we will prosecute the person or business responsible for supplying the waste.”

‘Help us find them’ - Havering Council wants to find culprits who dumped humongous skip and up to 60 tonnes of rubbish
11:25 10 February 2017
Ryan Tute (Romford Recorder)
 
The 20-yard skip left in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster, last night.
Havering Council is urging people to come forward and help catch blundering fly-tippers who have left potentially vital evidence behind.
 
Almost 40-60 tonnes of rubbish in the Upminster lane.
A 20-yard skip with serial numbers on has been left overnight, along with tonnes of waste in Little Gerpins Lane, Upminster.
It is the fourth time this week that criminals have off-loaded rubbish in the lane with officers estimating between 40-60 tonnes of waste being dumped.
Havering Council hopes someone will recognise the skip and have asked people to take note of serial numbers.
A Havering Council spokesman said: “This is the latest in a spate of fly-tipping on Gerpins Lane and are arranging for their removal; in the meantime the road will have to remain closed.
The serial number on the skip left by the blundering criminals.
“This time the criminals managed to drop the entire container, which we hope will provide us with several clues to where it’s come from.
“If the anyone recognises it, we urge them to report it by emailing StreetSceneEnforcement@havering.gov.uk
The council believe the skip was dropped at about 11pm last night and came off a eight wheeler lorry.
Eyewitnesses say the culprits spent about 10 minutes down the lane trying to re-attach the skip before making off.
The spokesman added: “It is vital that residents and businesses make sure that people taking away their building or general waste are licensed to do so and they obtain a receipt for the waste removed.
“If we can identify where fly-tip waste has originated from then we will prosecute the person or business responsible for supplying the waste to the fly-tipper.
“Some of the perpetrators have been caught and fined, while other prosecutions are pending.”

I saw a skip lorry parked in the lay by in berwick pond road near the manor yesterday about 11,00 am the lorry and skip were painted roughly in plain white .It seemed strange to park there but no sign of any off loading so could have just been sitting and it was 12 hours before this crime.

Did you take a note of the registration mark so that it could be 'eliminated from the enquiries'?

So lets get this correct.
You hire a skip to clear rubbish as an individual or company in good faith that the rubbish is disposed of in the correct manner? How can you be prosecuted and not the tippers?
And I don't recall reading anything about fly tippers have been prosecuted!
Has anyone else?

They prosecuted a guy about 18 months ago for a fly tip of builders rubble in Bedfords Park, he was fined a total of about two and a half grand.

The bill for clearing up fly tips that year was just under 150 grand.
