Help needed to solve flytipping crime

CCTV of flytippers

Do you recognise these men or this van?

The council is requesting help with an investigation into the flytipping of mattresses which were dumped in a bin shed.

Two men were captured on CCTV on the afternoon the mattresses were left and may hold vital information about who was responsible.

The waste was left in the bin shed of flats in Seymour Road, Chalvey, on Monday 26 April.

A caged van was also captured by CCTV cameras in the area with what appeared to be a business name professionally liveried on its doors.

It also stated the business was “Fully Licensed Rubbish Cleaners” however, the business cannot be traced.

Cllr Pavitar K. Mann, lead member for planning and  regulation, said: “These are really good clear images of men who may be able to help us find who illegally left these mattresses for the council to clear up on behalf of residents.

“A van was also seen in the area and anyone who knows who this van belongs please let us know.

“Fly tipping causes significant annoyance and disturbance to our residents, some of whom may be unwittingly using such people to get rid of waste without knowing they are not who they claim to be. 

“If you are hiring someone to take away your waste, please make sure they are a reputable waste removal company, who is willing to demonstrate they have a waste removal licence.”

Residents are responsible for employing licensed waste removal companies and can be prosecuted and fined up to £400 if their waste is found flytipped. 

Before hiring any company or individual to remove waste, check their details with the Environment Agency to assess whether they are a registered waste carrier.

Alternatively, waste can be taken to Chalvey Household Waste and Recycling Centre. More information about what is accepted is here - https://www.slough.gov.uk/bins-waste-recycling/household-waste-recycling-centres/2
