Well judging from this thread, it looks like we live in quite a tip. :roll:

MH, thanks to all for supporting this issue., a subject that really does upset my sense of pride at being born and bred here in King's Lynn. I intend to send links to this thread to the Environment Agency and Local Council. I doubt if it will have much effect but feel I must try something rarther than be passive by accepting it. If anyone else has any ideas as to how we bring this to the attention of the Authority's then lets hear them please.

I decided to take a stroll around Bawsey (with the dog) today, not been for several weeks.....wish now I hadn't. See these pics, don't be impressed by the presentation or quality just be apalled at the mindless, sensless selfishness of the morons who defile a beauty spot for others.





There are other that I took, even in the middle one pit are the remains of a burnt out car.
The owners of the site would be well justified in closing the gates and padlocking it to all.

Hi all.

I have emailed both District and County Councils. :twisted:

West Norfolk have replied: :shock:

Thank you for your e-mail. As you are probably aware the Household Waste recycling sites are run by Norfolk County Council and we at the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk have no control over the types and amounts of waste that are able to be taken to these sites, maybe you should contact Norfolk County Council. The Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk provide advice on all waste issues on our web site at If you follow the link click on services then environment you will find information under Waste Management. We also provide advice to anyone who contacts us with waste problems. I will forward your E-Mail to the head of my department. If you would like to discuss any waste issues feel free to contact me.


Jack Daniels

I will be getting back to Mr Daniels with some questions.

I have had no reply from County Council. Perhaps if we all send them in, someone will get fed up and do something?

Best wishes.

TB, good thought but you will find as this area is privately owned neither Councils can do anything.

Fly tipping

Yes, I understand that some of the areas concerned are privately owned, but if the councils changed their policies regarding what you can take to the tip, the problem could be greatly reduced. It is because you can't take this or that to the tip that this and that ends up in our lay bys.

As is normal, council officers don't actually want to deal with the problem, they hand it on to other people.

I will get back to WNDC because I consider environmental issues should be taken up by them with the County Council. It is no good them saying that they "have no control over what is taken to these sites" because the restrictions set down by County are having an enormous effect on the local environment for the area that they are responsible for.

The more of us that contact these bodies, the more likely we are to get something done.

Teddy :wink:

Yes I agree, or they will charge to use it, but more likely close it off.

Not too sure if you have heard of the site below :

I used it to report the problem of persistant dumping of rubbish on the Highgate side of the riverbank on Littleport Street, and got a very quick reponse from West Norfolk Council.

It appear the reponsibility for the river bank at Highgate belongs to the Internal Drainage Board.. I have mailed them but as of yet they have not had the courtesy to reply.

Just as a matter of interest uni, have the Internal Drainage Board sorted out the rubbish on the bank? I don't suppose they have much of a customer service department, and I just wondered how they dealt with you. :roll:

Unfortunately not....

Will leave it until a bit later in the year when the nettles, weeds etc have died down so I can take a photo of all the rubbish that is hidden at the moment.
