Two fly-tippers have been tracked down and fined after dumping building waste in communal bins in Camberley.

The pair were slapped with a £400 fine each after a tip-off from Accent Housing to Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC).

The culprits, who cannot be named, were caught on CCTV footage which recorded a van’s number plate.

The owner of the van and another person illegally dumped the building waste in the bins in Wimbledon Road.

Corporate enforcement officers at the council issued the fixed penalty notices just before Christmas.

SHBC’s corporate enforcement manager Julia Greenfield said: “Earlier this year we launched a joint anti fly-tipping campaign with Accent Housing, and we thank them for their help in this case.”

“There is no excuse for people not legitimately disposing of their waste, and we will continue to take action against people who are caught carrying out this criminal act,” she added.

Accent’s regional housing director Rob Mills said: “This is a great example of collaborative working between Accent and Surrey Heath Borough Council.
