Fed-up residents claim that hundreds of trucks dump tons of refuse in their quiet north London cul-de-sac.
Trucks packed sky-high with trash trench their loads on the site of a deserted care home in New Southgate, on the report to locals.
Angry inhabitants in flats around Grove Road and Massey Close say they had to undergo duplicate visits of the vehicles over a week helplessly.
Site owners Newlon Housing Trust may have to pay thousands of pounds to empty the site before construction company Rooff can get to work.
Multiple residents say they called police and eventually saw two squad cars outside the site on Saturday, once the alleged fly-tippers had left.
Saeed Jamli, 42, lives in a maisonette overlooking the site and first noticed the dumpsters arriving mid-night.

Introduction to the issue of fly-tipping and its impact on residents

He said, “Now we are thinking about the rubbish, rats and mice. It’s not a good view.”
Yahoo News UK has approached Enfield Council and the Met Police for comment.
The Bond Street path in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, was once a popular course for local dog walkers.
But inhabitants said the area had newly been used to old dunghill furniture, fridges, sofas and tyres.
A city board spokesman said it had a strict “zero tolerance” approach to waste offences.
Mother-of-two Erica Sadauskaite said the “dangerous” alleyway requires to be cleaned up.
“Once, I saw a scrap man take the stuff away, but there are unmoving sofas, chairs and fridges left,” she said.
“It’s just dreadful to see every day and dangerous.”
Clive Birch from Parkmoor yelled the fly-tipping in the path a “disgrace”, attach he had “never seen such a mess” in his life.

Effects of fly-tipping on the environment and public health

“I unload the bins down there [on Bond Street] over 38 years as a trunk man,” he said.
“What a dishonour this city is becoming.”
Another resident said they had observed people drive to the lane and dump a fridge.
A spokesperson for Stoke-on-Trent City Council said it had issued 33 Fixed Penalty Notices for misspending offences in the Tunstall ward.
The authority added it had also deployed CCTV cameras to curb fly-tipping in areas of high demand.
Residents have also been inspired to report any incidents through the website.
North Road ward councillor, Fred Lawton, said fly-tipping had become a significant problem across the ward.
“This area is becoming a black spot for fly-tipping; last weekend, four mattresses were dumped in an adjacent back lane,” he said.
“North Road ward councillors are very concerned about the increase in fly-tipping over the last three years,” he said.
“The council and the police will have to do something about it – this fly-tip is one of the biggest we have seen.

Legal framework and measures to tackle fly-tipping

“It costs the council money because they have to come down and take it all away.”
He added: “I would like these people to take more responsibility and think about the other people who have to live with it in their back alleys.
“The responsible people take their stuff to the tip, but unfortunately, there is a small minority of people who do not give a damn about other people in the town.
“I just wish we could do something more to stop it.”
A spokeswoman for the council said the area has since been cleared.
“There was no evidence at the scene as to where the rubbish came from, and our initial investigations suggest the vehicle was not registered with the DVLA,” she added.
And many have either been directly fined or are expecting they’re penalized.
In the past three years, 137 camcorders have been positioned at 78 different fly-tipping and littering hotspots across the Bradford district to brace for the difficulty.

Solutions and future prospects for tackling the issue of fly-tipping

Since April 2021, nearly 600 people have been camcorded through the CCTV system, and imposition action has begun against 500 of these tippers.
A new report on fly-cap in the district divulges that in the 2021/22 financial year, Bradford Council collected 5,186 tonnes of fly-tipped waste and litter following 9,700 occurrences.
Members of the Council’s Regeneration and Environment Scrutiny Committee will be specified a presentation on work being done to tackle the fly-tipping blight at a meeting on Tuesday.
They will hear that the new CCTV structure has gathered hundreds of offenders.
Bradford Council allot £150,000 for new cameras to stop fly-top in early 2021.
In 2021/22, these cameras snatched 129 people littering or fly-tipping.
