  • The only way Barnet Council are actually going to be sort this whole fly tipping debacle out, is either by putting small, battery operated cameras in specific hot-spots (and this is one such place) in order to catch and prosecute these individuals, or to come up with a cheaper scheme where the cost to dump domestic waste - like mattresses - at a designated, council site will be cheap enough to persuade 'professional' fly tippers that it's a far more economic solution than having to pay a £1000.00 fine.
