Do you know someone who is fly-tipping in Newham?
If so, you could receive a reward of up to £1,000 after charity Crimestoppers teamed up with Newham Council in a bid to crack down on the problem.
Last year, the council spent £3 million on cleaning up fly-tips - money that could have been spent on other services.
Dave Hunter, head of operations at Crimestoppers, said: “Fly-tipping is selfish and harmful for all those who live and work in the borough. It not only leaves a bad impression, but is a health hazard and encourages others to dump their rubbish.
“With so many people in Newham working hard to improve life in the borough, fly-tippers can ruin the effect of that good work within minutes.”
Only people who come to Crimestoppers directly with information that leads to a successful conviction will be eligible for the reward.
