Rotherham's five worst fly-tipping hotspots

THESE are the disgusting sites that have greeted walkers and drivers across Rotherham over the last few weeks.

Entire bathroom suites, tyres, beds and even garage doors have been fly-tipped on country lanes across the borough.

Here are five of the worst areas:

1 — Common Road, Harthill

2 — Town Lane, Kimberworth Park

3 — America Lane, Brampton Bierlow

4 — Long Lane, Treeton

5 — Back Lane, Greasbrough

A Rotherham Borough Council spokeswoman asked people to report flytipping to the authority by calling 01709 823118 or visiting

  • And we are getting human waste dumped on our roads and verges almost daily... incontinence pads, wipes, gloves and needles. Disgusting and dangerous. There is no reason for this apart from ignorance or spite... would so love this creature to be caught.

  • Pottery pond cat park at Swinton, ongoing issue with fly tipping, burnt out vehicles and drug dealing . To say it's supposed to be an English heritage site it's an absolute disgrace, children walking home from school having to walk through clouds of smoke from the drug dealers cars . About time something was done , trimming the hedges back hasn't made one bit of difference

  • Brecks Lane is another hotspot as is Grange Lane of Sheffield Road.
    Let's hope more fly tippers are caught with the introduction of new technology as iits a disgusting crime.

  • Behind St Mary's church High Street Rawmarsh leading to High Street Allotments. Disgraceful. Council informed and rubbish removed but then more rubbish dumped. It is an ongoing problem
