Partnership working gets large fly-tip cleared between Spalding and Cowbit
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.
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.'
