11 East London fly-tippers have been caught on camera across the month of May, dumping rubbish illegally on public streets. Footage of the law-breaking was shared by Redbridge Council in a compilation video on Twitter.
Fly-tipping is a serious criminal offence which carries a fine of up to £50,000 or even unlimited if the case goes to the Crown Court where an offender can even be sent to prison. Asking for help identifying the 11 offenders the video, dubbed the ‘wall of shame’ features several different CCTV clips of fly-tippers at a number of regularly soiled spots across the Redbridge borough.
The first dumping on May 2, Griggs Approach, Ley Street, sees a man place several bags full of rubbish next to a public bin. The next on May 13 sees a woman dumping a child’s buggy next to another public bin on High Road, Chadwell Heath Lane.

Two days later at the same bin two men were caught on camera dumping full carrier bags of rubbish, with a third man caught dumping a cardboard box on May 19. Once again a man and a woman were caught the next day dumping full bin bags of rubbish all at the same set of bins.
In a fourth incident at the same set of bins on May 22 another man dumped two full black bin bags, seeming to wait until some passing pedestrians were out of sight before dumping the bags. In the sixth incident on the junction of Eltisley Road and Sandyhill Road in Loxford on May 26 a man drops two full carrier bags before walking away sheepishly. In the same spot three days later another man dumped a gym bag, shoving it behind an electrical box.
In the penultimate clip two men dump full black bags next to already full wheelie bins on Highbury Gardens in Goodmayes on May 31. And the final clip filmed on May 28 sees a woman dump two bin bags next to a telegraph pole on the junction of Woodlands Road and Eton Road.
Redbridge Councillor for Ilford Town Saima Ahmed said: “Redbridge continues to take active action to stop the serial fly-tipping on our streets and open spaces. Help us identify these few offenders caught on camera and if you know them, please get in touch”.
