Barking and Dagenham Council has started a ‘Wall of Shame’ to identify offenders detected on camera perpetrating fly-tipping.
Under the new action, launched in acknowledgement of residents’ disappointments, members of the public are being urged to visit an online page and help find, name and shame people observed conducting “grime crimes” on CCTV.
Fly-tipping alone is thought to have cost the council a mountainous £384,304 between 2016 and 2017.
It would appear that of late, council enforcement teams have dealt with above 3,000 grime crime cases to further clean up the borough so that just gives us a sense of the measure of the dilemma.
“The Wall of Shame makes it easier for everyone can to do their part. If you notice someone you know doing something they shouldn’t, tell you can make the council aware anonymously.”
This is not the first action initiated by the local authority to stop unwanted rubbish in the borough.
Barking and Dagenham were actually one of the first councils in England and Wales to be awarded an injunction against the establishment of illegal encampments, including fly-tipping.
In the 18 months before the injunction, 41 illegal encampments were relocated.
The council has also dispensed 1,317 fines for enviro-crimes, including 335 penalties for littering, and dealt with 1,600 reports of horror gardens.
Several appeals are now live on the ‘Wall of Shame’. Residents who go online and identify a guilty party are invited to call 0208 724 8898 or email [email protected] citing the reference numbers seen on the videos.
