Van suspected of being used for fly tipping seized

A van suspected of being used for fly tipping in Liverpool has been seized by City Council officers. Working in partnership with Merseyside Police, they seized the white Ford Transit in Ingoe Lane, Fazakerley. Councils have the power to carry out such seizures if they have evidence to suspect a vehicle is being used to illegally dump waste in a way that could cause pollution to the environment or harm to human health. It is the 1st time these powers have been used in Liverpool. An application can now be made to the magistrates' court for the van to be forfeited. Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "Fly tipping is a criminal offence. It is anti social, causes a blight on neighbourhoods and results in distress and nuisance for residents. We have always said we will take any action we could against those responsible, and now that we have powers to seize vans suspected to be involved in this illegal activity we will use them. If you use a 'man and van service' to dispose of waste or unwanted items, you should always make sure that it is somebody who is properly licensed as a waste carrier and will responsibly dispose of whatever you give them. Ask for a receipt and make a note of the registration number of their vehicle. Residents can dispose of most unwanted household items for free by using the Bulky Bobs service or a their nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre. Our newest facility is located in Cheadle Avenue, off Green Lane, in Liverpool 13. Anybody who has information about fly tippers should contact Liverpool City Council's Street Scene Team in confidence on:- 0151 233 3001, you don't have to give your name or contact details"
