THIS unsightly heap of discarded rubbish has left residents fuming today after it was dumped just a quarter of a mile from a recycling centre.

The waste was left on Sunday morning in Foxhall Road, near the Foxhall Household Waste Recycling Centre.

To add insult to injury, the centre was open meaning there was no feasible reason why the items were dumped.

It is thought the rubbish was left some time between 8.30am and 1pm on Sunday.

Ray Walters, of Foxhall Road, said: “I called in at the centre to ask if anyone had been turned away during the morning and the site manager assured me that nobody had been refused entry.

“I cannot understand the mentality of the person who dumped this rubbish when it would have taken no longer to leave it at the recycling centre.

“It must have taken the person as long to dump it at the side of the road as it would have to go to the dump. It could have been from a lorry because there are quite a lot of large goods.”

Mr Walters said there has been an increase in the amount of paint, wheels and tyres dumped by the side of the road since they were banned from the centre.

He added: “We often see this happening down this road and it is just pure laziness.

“We have already had three similar incidents this week. Someone must have seen people do this so I do not understand why they don't challenge them.

“The farmer spent all of last week tidying up this area and now someone very selfish has come along and dumped all this.”
