DISGRUNTLED residents have expressed their concerns over fly-tipping in Wrexham.

Peter Williams, from Gwersyllt, took to social media on January 25 and February 2, to express his frustration towards those who dump unwanted items on Stansty Lane, just off the Mold Road, by uploading two photographs which highlighted the issue.

He said: "The photos were taken a week apart - and clearly shows that more fly-tipping was taking place within the same area.

"The first drop disgusted me, as I felt that the people responsible could have easily accessed facilities provided by Wrexham Council.

"Items dumped included children's toys and photo frames.

"To add insult to injury, the following week I saw a 'builders' bag - which is usually used to put rubbish in from properties being renovated - and this was then added to by four chairs being dumped but neatly stacked, one on the other."

He added: "They appear not to have any conscience about what they do and its environmental impact.

"It's appalling that they will not use the facilities that are available to them."

Another annoyed Gwersyllt resident, Colin Jones, 64, shared similar concerns regarding fly-tipping in the village.

He said: "It's becoming more frequent within the area.

"I walk my dog through the area on a daily basis and it's just horrible to see - what happened to people taking pride in where they live?

"There's free facilities for individuals to take their unwanted items - so there's no excuse.

"I dread to think of how worse this issue might get if serious action isn't taken."

A spokesman for Wrexham Council, said: "Fly-tipping is an offence and one we take very seriously - and we will not hesitate to take action via the courts if we become aware of who is responsible.

"Anyone who has information about fly-tipping should use the online reporting form at http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/env_services/community_services/flytipping.htm or alternatively report it by telephone 01978 298989."
