FARMER Tom Walne today called for a crackdown on fly tippers who are ruining the town.
The 68-year-old, of Ipswich, spoke out after Old Norwich Road has become a dumping ground for garden waste.
The latest bout saw leylandii tree clippings dumped in the middle of the road and garden waste in green plastic bags left under a "No Tipping" sign.
Furious Mr Walne feels enough is enough and is urging people who pay to have garden work done to find out exactly where their waste is going.
He said: "It just keeps happening. People are paying for their waste to be cleared and it is tipped on the road and in fields and gateways.

"There was a large load of brushwood and a small cherry tree dumped here. Someone must know who is responsible."
A spokeswoman from Mid Suffolk council said they take fly tipping seriously.
When notified of fly tipping it is standard practice to clear it within 48 hours. "It is difficult to witness people doing it," she said.
