Whilst being at home for much of the time can create additional waste and we all have a lot on our minds that does not mean that the normal rules do not apply. Anyone thinking of using the current situation as an excuse to indulge in fly-tipping needs to reconsider as the Waste Crime teams and Police are still prosecuting criminals, with the Waste Team continuing to monitor the Borough for all aspects of waste crime, including tipping.

Councillor Derek Mortime Chairman of The Communities, Housing and the Environment Committee said: "The Council will be seeking to ensure that despite the unusual times that we are living through our Borough's waste will continue to be disposed of properly and not fly-tipped, and will continue to work closely with Kent Police on prosecuting those who insist on fly-tipping in the false belief that they can get away with it."
