Fly-tippers face £400 fine in new crackdown

img_8105FLYTIPPERS who dump waste in Sefton could face a £400 on-thespot fine. New Government legislation allows local authorities the ability to set the amount for a fixed penalty notice for fly-tipping and Sefton Council has set the fine at £400. In the 2015/16 financial year, Sefton Council spent almost £400,000 clearing and disposing waste left by fly-tippers as well imposing offences.
