The Council have acted on the requests of the Argall BID Manager to install a CCTV camera in the vicinity of Staffa Road and Overton Road in an attempt to implement a permanent solution to the constant fly-tipping.
The fly tipping is largely carried out by customers of Argall Metal Recycling (AMR) leaving items on the public highway that can not be recycled at the plant. AMR are working with the BID to stop the fly tipping by putting up a sign indicating that fly tipping is unacceptable outside their business. The Council have also erected signs stating the maximum fine of £50, 000 and up to 5 years in prison.
Waltham Forest Enforcement Officers have been carrying out high visibility inspections that temporarily curtail the activity. A permanent solution may be realised when the CCTV camera is installed as the footage is monitored 24/7 and the movement of vehicles and individuals can be tracked by the BID’s extensive CCTV network including Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology. The camera is expected to be installed immanently.
