Dumped waste included around 20 black bin bags, plastic, cardboard, plant pots and other various garden and household waste.

Councillor Steve Evans, Cabinet Member for City Environment, said: "Fly tipping is a lazy and selfish act which costs taxpayers a lot of money to clean up. 

"Business owners usually pay for waste to be disposed of legally. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the waste has been illegally dumped.

"As a council, we make it our priority to keep our city clean and tidy and will not tolerate this behaviour.  We encourage anyone who may know who is responsible of this selfish act, to get in touch and help us put a stop to fly tipping."

City of Wolverhampton Council is asking anyone who recognises the dumped waste or is aware of any fly tipping incidents in the Wolverhampton area, to call 01902 555685 or report it via the council website at Type=articles;Articleid=7761;Title=Report fly tipping;.
