Cowbit Fly-Tip
Posted on 18 April 2023

Partnership working between South Holland District Council and Lincolnshire County Council has resulted in a large fly-tip being cleared at Drain Bank near Cowbit last month. 

Cowbit Fly-Tip

The Council's Enforcement team and Lincolnshire County Council staff worked with local landowners to gain access to the site of the fly-tip, the Council's Parks and Open Spaces team then cleared shrubbery and undergrowth to gain access to the large fly-tip.

Due to the size and nature of the fly-tip, which contained asbestos, rubble, garden waste and an assortment of household items, the clearance required an external contractor to support in the clearance.

The work took a total of 3 days and Lincolnshire County Council then installed a series of concrete blocks at the entrance to the site to prevent further fly-tipping.

A South Holland District Council Spokesperson said: 'This large fly-tip was a terrible eye-sore and showcased the severity of the challenges that we face, we are pleased to have worked with Lincolnshire County Council in a great example of Partnership working to get this site cleared.'

'We will continue to work with Partners to tackle fly-tipping and enviro-crime as a whole in the local area.'
