Fly tipping in rural areas would seem to be on the increase. A report from the Knutsford Guardian says that the cost to Cheshire East Council was more than £182,000 to clear up the mess in 2016/17, according to the latest numbers.
The figures from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs showed there were 3,037 reported incidents across the area that year, up from 2,879 in 2015/16.
In recent weeks there have been two incidents on Alderley Road with others in the locality.
Fly tipping is notoriously hard to prevent, however, if you are aware of any incident, you can report it on the Cheshire East Council website here. The site also provides advice on what we can all do to make life harder for the fly tippers.
