'Dark nights' fly-tipping warning to East Yorkshire residents
EAST YORKS: East Riding Council is alerting residents to a likely increase in fly-tipping as the dark nights start to close in.
There has been a drop in the number of incidents of the illegal dumping of waste reported to the council during July and August.
John Skidmore, head of the council's Streetscene services, said: "It is normal that fly- tipping tends to drop off during July and August. Longer daylight hours put them off as they are more likely to be spotted and reported.
"In previous years, we have found that as soon as the days get shorter, there is a rise in the number of incidents of dumped household waste, piles of rubble from extensions and drives, and ripped-out kitchens.
Come and discover the wildlife at Blacktoft Sands nature reserve for just £6. Offer includes entry for 2 adults and up to 3 children, binocular hire and activities for children. Normal value £12.
Terms: Redeem voucher at visitor reception during opening hours, 9am to 5pm. Only, one pair of binoculars per voucher, customers will need to leave car keys as a deposit for binoculars.
