THIS huge pile of rubbish dumped in the countryside on the edge of Grantham could earn a fine of up to £50,000 for whoever is responsible.
And council investigators have got a better chance of finding out who did it thanks to the personal information - including a birthday card and photos - dumped among it.
A Journal reader got in touch to let us know about the disgusting pile of rubbish blighting a footpath near Casthorpe.
And now investigators from South Kesteven District Council are looking for evidence that may help catch whoever dumped it. The rubbish will then be cleared up at the taxpayers’ expense. Among the items dumped were a uPVC window, a fence panel, a children’s slide, photos and negatives and used nappies.
SKDC’s head of environmental services, Dave Banks said: “Fly tipping is anti-social and it is a crime. Plus it costs local council tax payers around £40,000 each year to remove it and keep South Kesteven a clean and attractive place to live and enjoy.
“The council is always keen to investigate and identify those responsible for such crimes and take action which can result in a prosecution and fines of up to £50,000.”
