'Most wanted' flytipping suspects posters go on display in Tooting
Posters of suspects wanted for flytipping are being displayed after rubbish and an old mattress were left discarded in a street.
Officers reviewed CCTV footage and are publishing images of the suspects on wanted posters throughout Tooting.
The council are cracking down on fly tippers as part of the Cleaner Wandsworth campaign, which features a variety of initiatives to ensure streets are kept clean.
CCTV footage is being used to combat flytipping, particularly in areas which are persistently affected.
Fixed penalty notices will be handed out to people caught flytipping, who also face being prosecuted when the offence is deemed serious enough,
Members of the public are asked to contact the council if they witness a flytip.
Councillor Jonathan Cook, cabinet member for environment, culture and community safety, said: "It is outrageous that people think they can treat our streets like a dumping ground.
"Those responsible deserve to be punished - but to be able to track them down we need the public’s help.
"If you recognise the people pictured on these posters do get in touch with our enforcement team - your call will be treated in confidence and it will help send a strong message that flytipping will not be tolerated."
