Readers invited to join Globe-backed campaign against fly-tippers

A NEW crackdown on fly-tipping is being launched across the borough – and Globe readers have a chance to play their part in the campaign.

Fly-tipping is hugely anti-social and blights communities, and too often the culprits get away scot-free – so now’s your chance to do something about it.

So we’re uniting with the council to help clean-up the borough’s grot spots!

Wirral Council’s leader has set aside £400,000 to see the return of regular monthly alleyway clean-up squads - but he also wants to hear from readers who can nominate their own “grot-spots”.

He wants to not only clean up Wirral’s eyesores, but also to catch and prosecute those responsible.

Councillor Phil Davies said: “Globe readers have a big part to play in helping us crackdowmn of fly-tipping.

“It’s a major issue in many areas of the borough and I’m determined to do something about it.”

So if you’ve got a fly-tipping grot-spot to report, email us with the address and we’ll work with the council to have an action team sent round to clean it up. Send your emails to the editor: lmarles@wirral-globe.co.uk.

Alternatively you can telephone Streetscene on 606 2004.

The council should already know the regular repeat fly-tipping hotspots by now. Besides clearing this week's mess, do they take any other steps such as installing gates or CCTV? Nope.

I nominate Lingham Lane & the Tarran Industrial Estate in Moreton.

As I've posted once before, why doesn't the council provide a free mobile phone app :

I reported fly tipping and was told it would not be done until the next scheduled clean up and the Councillors were next to useless!

Wirral Clowncil could spend a few grand on a couple of decent infra-red cameras and covertly place them at strategic known fly tipping point but no they would rather waste money installing £850,000 stair cases and £25000 on stair carpets
and god knows what else thats been hidden in the books. And you can add me to your list Piermaster,. Since when have the idiots in the Clown Hall been "folks trying to do their best for the Wirral wide community" Cloud cuckoo land seems to come to mind reading your post....have you been away from the Wirral for the past 20 years.....you must have been if you think WBC are trying to do their best

I nominate Brighton Street. Large, steel cored ornate stone building on the right as you head towards New Brighton. House of plenty.

The place is in a squalid, stinking mess and it's attracted vermin that attack each other and feed off public money. Like rats on a sinking ship. The stench is awful and the only time the place looks organised and united in a common purpose is when there are public calls to intervene and reduce the number of parasitic rats. That's when the cowards unite together AS ONE. I would willingly volunteer to attend wearing protective gear and laying poison to de-infest the dump.

Summed it up in one, Piermaster...Venom, vitriol and blind hatred is what the encumbents of Wallasey Clown Hall deserve for the 20 years of mis-management, gross incompetence, dishonesty, lies, cover-ups, closures of services to fund paying off their mates with huge sums of our money, wasting fortunes on unneccessary "improvements" to their rat run and filling the trough of plenty so they can keep their snouts in good condition, so yes, you have summed up an awful lot of wirral residents feelings

Have made fly tipping complaint to WBC/Sreetscene over last few weeks . Told same thing that, that when the planned clear up is due will it be cleared.. This is dispite it having household waste now rotting and attracting vermin; plus now has encouraged more offending with furniture being dumped.

Most recently 13/03/14; I rang to say there was mail with name and address of offender(s) in bags.... Told by Sreetscene operator they could not help and wait for the next planned clear up.

This is happening in a locked alleyway so sadly it is neighbours committing this crime!!!!

No comment . Except I was trying to do the best for the wirral-wide community then and now simply because it was better than being silent about a waste of public funds that could indeed be used against fly-tipping

Over the past three weeks or more there has been rubbish dumped in the back alley between Greenwood Lane & Ivor Road. Each week this has been getting worse... Council sent residents a letter basically saying they would do nothing about it. If anything since this letter it seems to have made matters worse - thee is so much more rubbish including large items not just household waste - a few examples: old wardrobe doors, mattress, toys, chairs, sofas.. It is now getting to the stage where residents cannot use the alley to safely get in or out, let alone move there bins along the alley for the weekly bin collection. I cannot believe the council are so disinterested - will it take a resident having an accident trying to move past this rubbish before action is taken??
