Council officers in Staffordshire have asked members of the public for help in bringing fly-tippers in the county to justice.
According to reports posted on Stafford Borough Council's Grime Watch website, criminals have been fly-tipping in rural locations across the county in recent weeks.
In excess of 30 part-worn tyres from cars and vans were found discarded in a layby on the A518 on January 22. In December, council officers were alerted to a large pile of household items off the B5026, which included a portable television, electric cooker, vacuum cleaner and carpets.
Last year there were more than 350 reports of fly-tipping in the county, which cost an estimated £140,000 to clean up.
Earlier this month a 44-year-old man from Stafford was found guilty of dumping waste in a communal bin store meant for domestic refuse. He was given a conditional discharge by the court.
Members of the public with information on fly-tipping have been asked to get in touch using the council's online contact form or by calling 01785 619402.
