Officials with jobs in trading standards
have taken action to combat fly-tipping offences in Wokingham.
According to Get Wokingham, authorities are set to take part in a multi-agency campaign to tackle the dumping of waste, which costs taxpayers hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Working alongside West Berkshire Council, trading standards staff will carry out spot checks on vehicles near locations where rubbish has been dumped illegally.
Following residential concerns over the increasing issue, drivers could see their waste marked with smart water, which could be traced if identified.
Councillor Gary Cowan, executive member for the environment, said: "We believe there may well be a link between illegal waste carrying, fly tipping and illegal rogue trading."
Wokingham Borough Council has urged community members to contact the local authority if they witness any instances of fly-tipping in the area.
Residents are asked to remember the date, time and quantity of the rubbish during their report, along with whether or not it is of a dangerous nature.
