A LOWESTOFT business is to be reprimanded for its use of illegal fly-posting.
As the quest for a tidy town rumbles on, Waveney council officials revealed the company had been using a huge amount of stickers to promote themselves.
The council's legal department has been made aware of the situation and officers are planning to take the issue up with the business.
Mike Daniels, cleansing service manager, said: “We have received a number of calls from the public about the stickers and would like to thank those who have taken the time to let us know. Highlighting fly-posting the other week in

The Journal certainly seems to have raised the profile of the issue.
“It will take us several hours to remove the stickers and we would ask the public to bear with us, as we need to investigate and deal with the perpetrators before we can get going on the clean-up.

“We'd also like to reiterate the point we made about avoiding any business advertising its services in such a manner.”
After the recent increase in fly-tipping it appears that it is now on the decrease.
This week the cleansing team has removed bags from Kent Road and Windsor Road, a mattress at Oakwood Road, furniture at Cleveland Road and a barbecue at Desmond Close.
And last week only 12 reports were logged, including wood at Royal Green, carpets and a sofa from Norwich Road and bags from Oxford Road, Haward Street, Roman Road and Dell Road.
“We also removed wood from the play area at Chaulkers Cresent. We found this a particularly selfish act as there were several nails sticking out - a dangerous thing to leave in a children's play area,” said Mr Daniels.
“It's great that fly-tipping has dropped as it enables the team to spend more time on general cleansing jobs and de-weeding. We have been de-weeding London Road South, London Road North, Cathcart Street, Wellington Cottages and the rear access ways of north Lowestoft.
“In addition our weed-spraying contractor is also carrying out work in the area.”
This week the cleansing team has been concentrating on clearing litter and a small amount of fly-tipping from the Great Eastern Linear Way.
