Caught on Camera is back – help us catch fly-tippers

Published: Monday, August 23, 2021

No one likes a fly-tipper, which is why Wandsworth Council is re-launching its CCTV appeal - back by popular demand - to catch litter louts in the act.

Most people do the right thing with their rubbish and litter, but the irresponsible few think that it’s ok to dump it illegally.

Litter blights our streets, parks and town centres. It’s not acceptable, and residents have told us that tackling this is a key priority for them.

To address this head-on, the council is clamping down on those who think they can get away with this illegal behaviour.

“Caught on Camera” has returned to Thrale Road in Tooting, where some residents think they can get away with dumping a sofa, a mattress and a table – on the street!

Councillor Steffi Sutters, environment spokesman said, 

“You asked us to bring Caught on Camera back, so we have re-launched it, as there really is no excuse for dumping rubbish illegally. We take a zero-tolerance approach to fly-tipping, and we need your help to clamp down on those who ruin it for everyone else.

“So please get in touch if you recognise anyone in one of our “Caught On Camera” videos, so we can investigate and help keep our borough looking clean, tidy and at its best.”

Report fly-tip offenders
Remember you don’t need to see the videos to report fly-tip offenders. You can also report an incident by telling us what you saw or sending a picture in.

Tell us:

  • The circumstances, e.g. if you saw the fly-tipping, the date and time it took place and a description of any vehicles involved, plus registration number.
  • Take a picture of the incident, making sure you don’t put yourself or others at risk to do this.
  • Location: side of the road, back alleyway, railway embankment, in a river, and whether it was on private or council land.
  • The amount and type of waste, eg a few bags of rubbish, a fridge, a sofa.
