Mayor calls for public support to prosecute those who litter

More than 1,500 bags of rubbish have been collected from roadsides in Bedford Borough in just 4 weeks.

 

Teams have targeted busy roads around the borough and collected a huge amount of rubbish including cones, pieces of metal, lorry tyres and half a van load of wood.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Our teams have collected a staggering amount of litter however it is unacceptable that a thoughtless minority should cause this blight on our communities.

 

“I am calling on the vast majority of law abiding residents to help us by reporting anybody seen littering or fly-tipping. We are prosecuting more people than ever before and we will continue to take action to combat this behaviour whenever it occurs.”

 

  • Black Cat roundabout to Cardington Road: 425 bags
  • Cardington Road to Marsh Leys to Green Lane, Stewartby: 470 bags
  • Stewartby, Kempston Hardwick, B530 and A6: 416 bags
  • Paula Radcliffe Way and the A6 to Souldrop, A422 Bromham to Milton Keynes border and Spring Lane, Stagsden: 258 bags

 

If you see an enviro-crime being committed, please report it to the Council and provide as much information as you can which could be used as evidence. This can include a description of the offender, vehicle registration and any photographs. If we can gather sufficient evidence we will prosecute. You can report an enviro-crime by calling 01234 267422 or by visiting www.bedford.gov.uk and click ‘Report It’.
