NFDC probe into large asbestos fly-tip at Stoney Cross
AN investigation has been launched into a large haul of asbestos roofing found flytipped at Stoney Cross.
New Forest District Council highlighted the danger posed to wildlife as it urged people to help find those responsible for the toxic building material dump this afternoon (Thursday).
A Facebook post said: “We're investigating a large fly-tip of asbestos roof tiles in Stoney Cross.
“Dumping waste poses danger to wildlife, harms our Forest, and is illegal.
“If you have any information which could help us with this case, please email email@example.com or call us on 023 8028 5000.”
Those employing groups or individuals to take their waste away are reminded to check they are a licensed waste carrier by asking for their waste carrier licence number.
