Fines can cost as much as £400

Fly-tippers are facing a crackdown from the council, with dozens of fines handed out in the last four months.

Defra statistics reveal Bexley has handed more than 50, £400 fines to fly-tippers.

Cabinet Member, councillor Peter Craske said: “It is good to see that the impact of our work to tackle the scourge of fly-tipping is starting to pay off.

“Even though the borough has one of the lowest incidents of fly-tipping in London we will continue to be proactive and get even tougher on anyone who blights Bexley in this way.

“Fly-tipping is not just an anti-social behaviour problem it costs taxpayers money to clean up.

By working together - the Council and residents - we can keep this momentum going and our united message is that fly-tippers are not welcome here.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
