FROM Tuesday, July 1, dumping household waste in council-run tips will cost up to £70.

Residents will need a permit to carry rubbish in small vans or trailers.

The new permits will cost £35 for vehicles up to the size of an escort van and trailers up to 1.8m long and rise to £70 for Ford Transit sized vans.

These costs will increase fly tipping throughout the borough and blight beauty spots.

Not to mention the cost to the council and environment.

Tipping is morally wrong but the council get enough money from off us as it is.
