MP calls for clampdown on fly tipping


Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine is calling on the Edinburgh City Council to clamp down on fly tipping and dumping in West Edinburgh.

She said: "Fly tipping isn’t just inconsiderate and an eyesore it can be dangerous and create environmental problems and for my constituents who are sick and tired of people using their communities as a dumping ground."

 

"We owe a huge thank you to those in the waste industry working to keep services up and running during the pandemic, but the council and the public have to do more to support them.

 

“The council needs to be keeping people better informed about the provision of services and produce a long-term plan to reduce the amount of fly tipping in the city.”
