ANGUS Council say they are investigating after reports of fly-tipping at Westhaven near to the railway line.

Our picture taken on Wednesday shows mounds of garden waste such as plants and black bin bags that have been dumped on the fields.

The council confirmed that they were aware of the dumping of rubbish at Westhaven and urged anybody who sees this happening to contact the ACCESSLine.

A council spokeswoman said: “ We are investigating the report of fly-tipping at Westhaven.

“Fly-tipping is illegal and anyone who sees this happening should report it to Angus Council’s ACCESSLine on 08452 777 778.

“If fly-tipping occurs on public land, the council will remove the rubbish, otherwise it is up to the landowner to make arrangements for disposal.

“We have kerbside waste collection services in Angus, staffed recycling centres in our towns and recycling points throughout the county for the disposal of waste.

“We also operate a disposal service for bulky objects, details of which can be found on the council’s website or by contacting ACCESSLine.”
