Dumpers nicked in a click

This dumper was caught in the act by a Tweni ratepayer who made the offender take his rubbish back home.

YOU are warned – if you are caught illegally dumping by the ‘eye in the sky’ – you will be exposed.

Of late Commercial Road is looking very tatty and is fast becoming a notorious dumping spot.

Tweni residents are now fighting back against those who dump at the recycling bins in Commercial Road. Tweni Crime Watch recently installed a camera nearby to monitor the site.

In addition, residents and businesses that overlook the recycling bins are keeping a look-out. So you have been warned.

Mike Davies, the secretary of the Tweni Ratepayers’ Association, said a local pet food company had already been caught dumping at this spot.

Then, last Sunday morning, the cameras recorded a white Nissan NP200, which came to the site twice to dump cardboard boxes. The camera system tracked the offender to a complex in Abingdon Road.

One of Tweni's cameras recently caught this culprit dumping at the recycling bins in Commercial Road.

“The real shame is that most of the stuff dumped can be recycled if it was just separated from the rest of the rubbish and the cardboard boxes squashed flat and put in the bins,” he said.
