Fly-Tipping: Thurrock’s Disgrace

YOU have to laugh: there among the debris and squalor of a hundred yards of rubbish, fly-tipped near to Courtney Road in Chadwell, was a council leaflet called “Limiting Landfill in Thurrock”

The real concern for many people is that with all the will in the world; with all the regeneration projects in the world, unless somebody somewhere deals very quickly with the epidemic of fly-tipping, then there will be serious questions about how Thurrock can be an attractive place for people to live.

It is surely not people’s imaginations. YourThurrock reporters drive around the borough every day and we are sure that the fly-tipping has become an epidemic.

This will be a test for the authorities, to move up a few gears and clamp down very quickly: not done a week later or not done at all. From a political perspective, this is clearly one of the messages that is coming from the doorsteps with the election only 36 days away.


  1. This looks like a truck has driven along with someone chucking the bags from the back.

    I wonder if someone has just started offering cheap rubbish and garden clearance to resdients and then just chuck the rubbish they have collected in some one elses neighbourhood.

  2. Flytipping has been a blight on Thurrock for years, just drive down Tilbury way and you will see it all, it must cost the local tax payers an absolute fortune to clear the mess up, it is about time these people were bought to justice and have their vehicles taken away.
