THE fight against fly-tipping goes on, a councillor has said.

Shotton continues to be blighted with rubbish as residents woke to yet more waste across the town, particularly Strickland Street.

Councillor Mike Evans, of Shotton East Ward, told the Leader that he will continue to do all he can to combat the problem.

He said: "It's unbelievable. It's mixed stuff inside.

"As normal, one person sees a bag there and they dump their stuff.

"It's just unbelievable. The mess on Strickland Street is terrible, I'm lost for words. I just don't understand the mentality.

"We have had everything including the kitchen sink dumped. Some people just think it's okay and it's ruining it for the good residents of Shotton."

The Leader has previously reported that cameras were placed in hotspot areas in a bid to combat the issue.

However Cllr Evans said the flytippers are avoiding the CCTV.

He added: "Cameras are placed in the other alley near Butler street, these people seem to be avoiding them.

"We had a blip a few weeks ago and yes it has improved down the bottom of that particular alley but that's where the cameras are.

"I'm just lost for words, how anyone can do that on a public pavement. Not just a few bags either, there's a lot of stuff.

"I will still carry on doing so. Unfortunately the issues are still here. The fight goes on, don't let the few ruin it for the many."

Councillor Dave Evans, Flintshire representative, confirmed the incident had been reported to Streetscene officers.
