Huge cost of the selfish fly-tippers
FLY-TIPPING incidents cost taxpayers around £70,000 a year.
Incidents have risen over the past year East Lindsey District Council dealt with 1,876 incidents of fly-tipping from July 2012 to June 2013, compared to 1,567 the previous year.
The council's portfolio holder for the environment, Councillor Steve Newton, said: "Fly-tipping will not be tolerated and we will do all we can to catch offenders.
"East Lindsey is a beautiful district and it is unacceptable that people take advantage of our rural area by dumping their unwanted items in lay-bys and ditches when there are plenty of legitimate ways in which they can be disposed of."
