Essex County Standard: "Environmental terrorists" dumped asbestos "Environmental terrorists" dumped asbestos

FLYTIPPERS dumped asbestos near public toliets.

Tendring Council had to spent £600 on contractors to remove the building materials, found near public conveniences in Ipswich Road, Holland-on-Sea.

Staff had been in the area three days earlier clearing up rubbish.

Nick Turner, councillor responsible for the environment, hopes someone will come forward to help catch those responsible.

He said: “These environmental terrorists are not just costing the council.

“They will have got the work because they will have been paid cash, hold no waste carrier’s credentials or be VAT registered or paying income tax - so the cost to UK plc is huge.

“Residents have a social responsibility to check all these points before employing a contractor and if they can't demonstrate legitimacy then use someone else.

“One of our own residents will know who did this because it would be their home, or their neighbour’s home, this toxic waste came from and I would ask them to come forward urgently.”

Anyone with information about the waste, which was reported on October 25, can call Tendring Council on 01255 686788.

Never assume Nick Turner - they may have a waste carriers license, may be VAT registered and may not have been paid cash. You just dont know!

What we do know is they are ar53h0l3s.
