BLACK bin bags and a travel case have been dumped behind homes in Winsford.

Residents in Bollin Avenue have reported the fly-tipping, which they say has doubled in size over the last week.

The Weaver Vale Housing Trust has pledged to clear up the rubbish, not far from Bradbury Road Park, this week.

Plans to install CCTV at fly-tipping hotspots are also in the works.

Julia Chambres, the open spaces and environmental services manager at WVHT, said: “We take pride in our neighbourhoods and communities in the same way that residents do, and fly-tipping is never acceptable.

"We are committed to working with our joint partners Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire Police to identify and prosecute offenders.

“We became aware of the fly-tipping at in Bollin Avenue, Winsford, during our regular estate inspection and the rubbish is due to be collected this week.

“Our teams work daily to manage and remove rubbish and we actively work with communities to encourage awareness and use of all the waste disposal options offered by the council, including the bulky waste collection service.

“We are progressing with CCTV installation in fly-tipping hotspots, and we urge residents to continue reporting any concerns to us so they can be resolved quickly.”
