The pile of white goods were spotted just off Hixberry Lane this morning at about 9.30am by resident Ellen Myring.

She said it was saddening: “It damages the planet with poisonous gas, nonbiodegradable plastic strewn, large plastic and metal blocks which can potentially cause serious injury - not to mention the animals that will consume the rotting food and become ill.

“The list of negatives is endless due to selfish, obnoxious people.”

St Albans district council (SADC) was not aware of the fly-tip and as it is on private land have not got responsibilty for the clear up - however, it would be happy to offer waste management advice to the landowner.

Anyone who spots fly-tipping taking place should contact police on 999. Anything discovered afterwards should be reported to SADC on 01727 809019 or on wastemanagementservices@stalbans.gov.uk
