Fly tipping costs Dorset taxpayers0
Work to clean up almost two tonnes of rubbish dumped on a Dorset roadside by fly-tippers has cost taxpayers £10,000.
It took workers five nights to clear the A338 stretch between Ashley Heath roundabout and Blackwater junction.
Car tyres and six televisions were among the 1.8 tonnes of rubbish dumped by fly-tippers, with about a third of the waste later sent for recycling.
Steve Burdis, director of Dorset Waste Partnership, said fly-tippers showed a “lack of care” for the environment.
