Major campaign to crack down on scourge of fly-tipping in Newark and Sherwood
A major new campaign is being proposed to crack down on the scourge of fly-tipping in Newark and Sherwood, where the equivalent weight of 30 double decker buses is dumped every year.
Councillors will consider ramping up action to catch and punish offenders in order to combat the unsightly and costly problem, with incidents of illegal dumping on the increase and running at nearly four a day.
The new campaign, Not In Newark and Sherwood, follows on from Newark and Sherwood District Council’s highly successful Cleaner, Safer, Greener initiative that was aimed at creating a greater sense of pride in the environment and tackling environmental crime.
