Two fly-tipping hotspots in Winsford are to be to be targeted by a new multiagency taskforce.
Housing association Weaver Vale Housing Trust (WVHT), Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire Police have joined forces with residents to tackle the issue around Wharton Gardens and Crook Lane.
The partnership will include initiatives to highlight the correct way to dispose of waste, remove barriers that can lead to fly-tipping and prosecute offenders.
All waste will be removed, new signage and CCTV installed and information packs will be issued to residents to explain proper waste disposal.
Residents will also be able to request more bins and recycling boxes if needed.
Wayne Gales, Chief Executive of WVHT, said: “Fly-tipping is a serious issue. It can blight local communities and affect the health and wellbeing of residents.
“We are delighted to be bringing partners together across the council and police. We will work with residents to tackle the challenge and raise awareness of the importance of disposing of waste correctly.
“This project will have a significant impact on these estates and support our aims to create healthy, vibrant communities.”
