A week-long crackdown on fly-tipping in Norbury saw more than 30 people fined.

Between January 13 and January 20, 33 fixed penalty notices were handed out to different people for fly-tipping and having unlicensed skips or other waste blocking seven roads including Northborough Road, Hatch Road and Newlands Road.

A further 19 cases could still lead to fines as investigations are followed up.

Croydon Council officers carried out high-visibility patrols after residents contacted the council reporting issues including fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour in their neighbourhood.

As part of the week of actions officers also carried out more than 30 inspections for companies that produce, store or transport rubbish to make sure they were disposing of waste correctly. Businesses who do not dispose of waste properly could face a fine.

Councillor Stuart Collins, cabinet member for clean, green Croydon, said: “I’m glad we have been able help residents in Norbury by fining people who have been blighting their local area.

“We will always look to fine fly-tippers and prosecute in the worst cases, our Don’t Mess With Croydon, Take Pride campaign has gone from strength to strength and taken action against hundreds of offenders.”
