Fly tipping deterrent trial

We’re determined to reduce the levels of dumped rubbished in the borough. Not only is fly tipping unsafe and look unsightly, it costs large amounts of money every year to clear away.

The cameras will act as a deterrent and potentially be used to prosecute offenders.

Where will the cameras be located?

The cameras will be located at areas where fly tipping has been recorded. As they are on movable structures, they may be moved to any appropriate location in the borough during the trial.

The first three locations were:

  • Vauxhall Grove, Prince’s ward
  • Shakespeare Road, Coldharbour ward
  • Corner of Elms Road and Clapham Common South Side, Clapham Common ward.

How long will the trial be running?

The trial began during the last week of October and is running for approximately eight weeks.
