Tameside Council Assistant Executive Member Cllr Vincent Ricci, who is responsible for enforcement and attended the day, said: “It’s always a great result when we’re able to trace waste back to those responsible for dumping it and hold them accountable for their actions. Flytipping is completely inexcusable and disrespectful to the local community and environment. We will always take enforcement action against offenders where we find evidence.”
