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.”
