Shirley Plenderleith, head of public services at Kettering Council, said: “Fly-tipping not only blights neighbourhoods but costs time and money to remove it – resources that would be better spent elsewhere.
“Kettering Council takes fly-tipping offences very seriously and will prosecute offenders where possible.
“I would urge anyone who spots fly-tippers to report it to the council on 01536 410333 or online at www.kettering.gov.uk /flytipping.”
A council spokesman encouraged members of the public to remain vigilant, particularly in rural areas.
