NEW Forest District Council is on the hunt for a fly-tipper who dumped this 'distinctive' rubbish in New Milton over the weekend.

The council provided an email address for those who recognise the waste pictured to get in contact confidentially.

In a social media post, NFDC asked: "Do you recognise this distinctive dumped waste we had to clear from Stem Lane, New Milton over the weekend?

"Tell us, in confidence, so we can take action.

"Flytipping is a crime and it's your duty to make sure your waste is disposed of properly. You could face an unlimited fine if you're responsible for flytipping.

"Hold on to your waste until you can take it to a registered site or use a registered waste carrier."

It's the latest in a string of local fly-tipping as councils resist urges by the public and an MP to open recycling centres which have been closed due to coronavirus lockdown measures.

The email address is customer.services@nfdc.gov.uk

The council also renewed pleas that residents not dump unwanted clothes at textile bins, and posted a picture of a site at Lyndhurst where bags had been left.

"If textile banks are full or closed, as the sign on these says, leaving bags outside them is dumping waste," the council said.

"Contractors for the charity who own these bins are not collecting at the moment and our people now have to leave what they should be doing and go and clear this waste up, which is now sodden."
