The Evening Star has launched a Dump the Dumpers campaign in a bid to help combat the problem of fly tipping and councillor Eddie Alcock, responsible for public services and licensing at the council, said: "Mid Suffolk district council actively pursues fly tippers.
"It is unacceptable that some citizens spoil others' enjoyment of our beautiful district and at the same time are diverting council resources that can be used far more effectively elsewhere."

The man admitted fly tipping, an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
Paul Lewis, the council's waste and environmental co-ordinator, said: "Fly tipping is lazy and inexcusable."
He added: "The overwhelming majority of our residents work hard to re-cycle and dispose of rubbish thoughtfully and they should not have to suffer fly tippers' lack of consideration."
Fly tipping can be reported to the council on 01449 778668.
