Ruddington’s Fly-Tipping Menace

Rushcliffe Borough Council is warning that the illegal dumping of waste on our streets or in our countryside will not be tolerated – with heavy fines and court bills for anyone identified doing it. It follows another fly-tipping incident in Ruddington yesterday (pictured above) when resident Adam Martyn contacted us to report that 2 big double fridges and 3 large fridges had been dumped just off the A60 on Asher Lane. Adam also called the Council – and has applauded the speed with which their contractors ‘Streetwise‘ came along to clear up the…
