A NOTORIOUS dumping ground in north Suffolk has been targeted again by fly-tippers.

Mike Daniels, cleansing manager at Waveney District Council, said despite only receiving a few reports this week, fridges had been discarded at Latymere Dam on the A12, near Kessingland.

He said: “We were pleased to receive such a low number of reports this week but we were also disappointed when we were told of fridges dumped at Latymere Dam. This is the first fly-tip in this area for a long time and it came after we made an effort to inform people about the dangers of dumping fridges last week. A number of appliances were left, along with a mattress.

“We highlighted the perils in last week's Journal, after a fridge was found at Bonds Meadow and this site is only about a mile-and-a-half away. Please dispose of such items responsibly, we cannot emphasise the dangers strongly enough.”

Mr Daniels said they recovered a television and a chest of drawers from The Hemplands, a mattress and armchair from Beaconsfield Road and bags from Tennyson Road car park.

“We collected bags of green garden waste from Bonds Meadow and a bag of clothes from Lorne Road. Both incidents of fly-tipping were totally unnecessary.

“The green waste could have gone in the green recycling bin, which is collected from your doorstep. Alternatively, it would have been accepted at any household waste recycling centre. The clothes could have been taken to a clothes bank or donated to a charity shop.”

Mr Daniels said they were still busy collecting leaves, with about 10 tonnes picked up in the last week.

The team has also been removing graffiti from play equipment and a garage wall in the town.
