A £500 reward is being offered to anyone with information about a full skip recently dumped in Penge that leads to a prosecution.

The roll-on roll-off skip, tipped in Meaford Way, is thought to weigh over 11 tonnes, made up largely of rubble and wood.

Bromley Council is appealing for witnesses to flytipping to come forward in a new initiative.

Councillor Kate Lymer, Executive Councillor for Public Protection and Enforcement, said: "This appears to be a highly organised audacious and targeted incident and we will not hesitate to prosecute if we have the evidence.

"Anyone witnessing the dumping of this large skip or with any useful information should please get in touch at www.bromley.gov.uk/envirocrime where evidence can be reported confidentially online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

"We have a range of measures at our disposal including our anti fly-tipping campaign ‘Fly-tippers - we’re watching you’ and we’re doing everything we can to tackle this issue but any help from eagled-eyed members of the public is always appreciated.”

The Council has reminded residents that with the easing of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and the return to work for many, the waste from their garden or DIY improvements should only be disposed of by an authorised Environment Agency waste carrier.

Often unsolicited cold callers are employed who fly-tip the waste preferring to keep all the money for removing it rather than pay legitimate fees at a waste transfer site.

Anyone with more fly-tipping information or other enviro crime evidence should go to www.bromley.gov.uk/envirocrime.
