Rubbish fly tipped on the Forty Foot

Someone’s old bathroom is now gracing the junction of Forty Foot Lane and the Three Shires Way to the north of Souldrop Village. “It’s a bloody disgrace!” one local resident was heard to mutter whilst out walking their dogs. The waste appeared sometime inbetween Thursday 28th and Sunday 31st March and is blowing about in the windy conditions. The Bedford Borough Council has been informed, they advised that the owner of the rubbish could face penalties of up to £5,000 for duty of care offences, if they don’t check that the company or person they give waste to:

  • has a license to carry waste
  • is not taking it to an unlicensed site.
