Hayes : Network Rail site used for 'industrial scale fly- tipping.

A plot owned by Network Rail has had around 60 van loads of rubbish dumped. A man who works nearby - who said the fly-tipping was on an "industrial scale" - first noticed caravans parking on the plot this month. He then noticed vans coming in and out, offloading household waste, mattresses, washing machines and building debris. The man, who wants to remain anonymous, said he saw about 50 to 60 van loads of rubbish being dumped at the Dawley Road site, which he reported to Network Rail and Hillingdon Council."The vans kept coming and coming, their frequency increased over the last week," he said. "The people running the site realised we had been filming them; they had notified their customers, so the vans started arriving with their registration numbers covered. "We also noticed that when the vans were coming in and out of the lot, they were giving something to the people running the site, but from the distance we couldn't see what it was." He added that a professional waste company with its logo clearly visible on its vans was seen dumping rubbish at the site. The man said he and his colleagues reported the matter to the council, the police and Network Rail but no-one claimed responsibility - "everyone said that it wasn't their problem," he explained. "We felt helpless. When fly-tipping happens on a massive industrial scale, there is no-one there to report it to." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-london-67219161

        It is concerning that a Network Rail site is being used for such activities on an industrial scale. It is important for authorities to take strict action against those responsible and implement measures to prevent such incidents in the future. Proper waste management and disposal practices should be promoted to ensure the protection of our environment.

                  The industrial-scale fly-tipping at the Network Rail site is a concerning environmental issue. Dumping household waste, mattresses, and building debris on this scale is not only illegal but also detrimental to the environment. It's disheartening that nobody seems to take responsibility for this, highlighting the need for stronger measures to combat illegal dumping and protect our environment. 🌍♻️ #IllegalDumping #EnvironmentalProtection #ClimateChangeConsequences
