Help Sought to Bring Tyre Dumpers to Justice

By Published November 20, 2017

CAN you help bring a couple of brazen fly-tippers to justice?

The pair were caught on camera dumping a load of old tyres in the street – and should be facing a hefty fine for their actions.

Their flat-bed car transporter truck was picked up in Falmouth Street in Middlesbrough at just before 4.20pm on Thursday, October 12.

The vehicle drove along the odd-numbered side of the street, with around seven tyres strapped to the rear.

The two men were seen to get out of the truck and dump the tyres in the street before driving off at speed.

The white van – registration number FP06 RVE – has the word ‘Recovery’ written on the rear of the cab which also features a black and white check design.

Councillor Tracy Harvey, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Commercial Services, said: “Fly-tipping is a blight on our streets, and we are committed to stamping it out.

“There was absolutely no excuse for dumping old tyres in this way, and those responsible are liable to find themselves facing a hefty fine.

“I’d appeal to anyone who knows who these people are to get in touch with us in confidence, and help put an end to this unacceptable, lazy and irresponsible practice.”

  • If you can help to identify the pair, or know the current whereabouts of their truck, call 01642 300508 and ask for Sam Garside or Katie Bargewell.
