HAYES councillor Janet Gardner is warning fly-tippers in the face of continued rubbish dumping in the Botwell ward she represents in Hayes.

Currently, people are ask to inform Hillingdon Council of locations of where rubbish has been left, but she says this does nothing to catch the culprits or prevent them from simply re-offending.

Cllr Gardner wants the council to go through the rubbish every time it is reported to identify who it belongs to - and then to take swift action against the culprits.

The current system, she argues, needs to be strictly enforced to halt the problem.

Her fellow Labour councillors in Hillingdon have previously raised the issue of fly-tipping in the borough.

She  said: "I live in the area and I am always around, so I will do what I can to help catch those responsible for polluting our streets with their rubbish. When I do, I will name and shame them publicly.

"I ask those residents who care about our community to be vigilant. Get in touch if you know who the culprits are or if you see fly-tipping in the area and I will do my best to make sure they are dealt with."
