Took this during the trade exhibition at St Nicks a few weeks ago, it
goes rather well with you pic, same place, same flat. The people that
live there are some of our eastern european workers, bless um :roll:

Rubbish cleared...

Postby warwound » 28 Sep 2007, 11:55

Good news to report today!


Image
This area is now all cleared. The small freezer, old set of drawers, vacuum cleaners and all other rubbish now gone.
(The cooker half way down the riverbank is still there but i think that'll be there a while yet as it's so tricky to recover from the muddy bank).
Image


This area cleared too. Gone is the old washing machine, the wood panels and all those empty cider cans.

I did see a small Environment Agency van by the river yesterday morning and wonder whether they had anything to do with the cleanup.

Anyway good to see the rubbish gone and thanks to whoever has the rather cr@ppy job of clearing up other peoples rubbish.

Martin.

There is a bit in the paper today about a big clean up campaign
taking place in the town. Lets hope this site did some good.

Just a little update.

That mattress on the St Nicholas Close flat roof has gone too!

Time for me to find the Lynn News and have a read i think.

I think you should be made "Flytipping Warden" for the town WWound :D
If there is no such post, one should be created.

Well done WW, its good to see things get cleared up. I don't think there is any way of stopping these flytippers, the only thing we can do is report what we see.

CCTV could be installed in these places but at the moment is probably not as cost effective as paying to have it manually removed.

Lets hope that scientists find the 'fly tipping gene' in human DNA, then it can be screen for in the womb and if detected the foetus can be aborted. :D

The battle against fly-tippers along the riverbank past Crossbank Road is ongoing...
Less than a fortnight after much (or even most) of the riverbank's rubbish has been cleared i find there's more!

Image

Image

Image

What is it i wonder - a bathroom shelving unit?

Image

A lot of rubbish was cleared from here in the past week or so, a lot of it was empty cider cans - and i mean a LOT of empties.

Image

Just three blue bags of empty cider cans at present but i anticipate a lot more to follow.
I think a chap drives down here (in a white van?) for his lunch break most days, has a few ciders too and simply discards his empties to the nearby riverbank.

Further along the track, past the pylons:

Image

Anyone care to guess at what that last item is?
A lid to a tank i thought?

And on to the end of the track where i'm pleased to see that the washing machine has been cleared:

The ongoing rant

Postby warwound » 18 Oct 2007, 20:59

Hi all.

Latest updates as always on the local fly-tipping scene provided by yours truly!

Some good news first:

ImageThis is cleared - don't know when but it was at least a week ago i think.

More good news - i've upgraded my digital camera!
I went for the Fuji S6500fd and i'm really pleased with it - last camera was a Fuji A330 so this was quite an upgrade.
So being out and about earlier i decided to head for the relative darkness of the river and try my hand at some photos of the moon.

The bad news:

Image

What's that i see..?

Image
Household or a builder's waste?
Looks like household waste to me except for the massive timber sleeper.

This has been fly-tipped in the same place as the gas cylinders i reported in a previous post:

Image
The area obviously attracts fly-tippers like a steaming turd attracts flies!!

Time to go - got some photography skills to brush up on.

Martin.

Good luck with the new cam ww :D
I hope it doesn't take as many rubbish pictures as your old one did. :-D
Although by the looks of it there will be no change. :roll:

Martin. I do not know if you saw it, but in the LN&A it said that Clarks Dyke is
now overlooked by CCTV cameras in the hope that it will deter the fly-tippers.
Lets hope it works. One or two prosecutions with the help of the CCTV would
be good.

Ahhh!

I read about the new CCTV being installed but didn't realise that it was being installed along Clarks Dyke.

I shall have to have a look later to see where the cameras are.
