Lewisham residents could have access to ‘community tips’ in a bid to tackle fly-tipping.
A motion to launch a new approach to tackle the problem is due to be passed by Lewisham Council next week.
Plans include a review of what it would cost to provide community tips, which would make it much easier for people to dispose of their rubbish.
Currently residents “effectively need to own a car” to access the tip at Landmann Way.
The move is in response to figures published in January which showed that fly-tipping incidences have shot up by 50% in the last six years, from 714,631 in 2012/13 to 1,072,431 in 2018/19.
According to the figures, councils are shelling out £58 million a year to clean up the mess.
