In an effort to clamp down both on fly tipping and the road worthiness of waste carrying vehicles, a multi-agency operation took place recently.
The operation, involving specialist and Safer Neighbourhood Team officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary and council officers from our Environmental Health team took place on Friday 12 February and focused on access points to known fly tipping hot spots in the borough. A number of stop checks were carried out on commercial vehicles.
In total, 19 vehicles were stopped, prompting four waste licence enquiries to be carried out. Three drivers were dealt with for vehicle defect offences and Smart Water was applied to one vehicle as a crime prevention measure.
Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and can really blight an area. Anybody who passes waste to an unknown person without exchanging traceable paperwork immediately commits an offence. This also applies to local residents, who should not pay to have waste removed from their property without first checking that the person removing the waste is a licensed waste carrier, and always obtain a receipt.

If you see fly-tipping offences taking place, please contact the police via 999.

A note from Aldenham Parish Council.
I just wanted to let you know that the Groundstaff are taking down the noticeboard at Letchmore Heath.
It is now causing a Health and Safety issue as part of the legs are rotten and could collapse at any point.
The replacement is now an item on the next Parks and Open Spaces agenda.
