The leader of Rochdale council has vowed to ‘crack down’ on fly-tippers as the authority adopts a new strategy for tackling the scourge.

There were more than 5,000 incidents of illegal dumping in the borough during the 2020/21 municipal year, with disposal costs alone setting the council back by £167k.

According to data, household waste accounts for the majority of fly-tipping in Rochdale, with roads, back alleys and council land being the main spots for discarding rubbish.
