DENBIGHSHIRE County Council has condemned fly-tipping after large amounts of rubbish were left fly-tipped at a nature reserve in Rhyl.

A resident sent the Journal the attached photographs, taken on February 18, of rubbish being dumped on the floor at Glan Morfa Community Woodland.

The resident that there has been “repeated fly-tipping” at the nature reserve, adding: “The council can't cope, so CCTV is needed. This is a nature reserve and beauty spot.”

In response, Denbighshire County Council warned that fly-tippers will be dealt with “through the appropriate channels”.

A council spokesperson said: “Fly-tipping is a form of anti-social of behaviour and a criminal offence.

“It’s a blight on the landscape and has a negative impact on the quality of life for residents.

“The vast majority of people are law-abiding citizens who dispose of their waste responsibly through our council waste collections or by taking items to our recycling centres.

“So, it is disappointing to hear when cases of fly-tipping occur in Denbighshire.

“There is no excuse for dumping rubbish anywhere and the council will not tolerate this behaviour.

“If anyone has information about offenders, they should get in touch, and we will deal with those people through the appropriate channels.”
