    Sefton Council Environmental Health officers are clamping down on alleyway dumpers after a resident was caught flytipping in Litherland.  Each year Sefton's cleansing teams have to clear an astonishing 1,500 tonnes of rubbish from alleyways across the borough, costing the Council nearly £450,000 to clear up and dispose of.   On average thirty tonnes of flytipped rubbish is left in rear alleyways and passageways each week, with each tonne running up a bill of £300.  At a recent court case at South Sefton Magistrates Court, Peter O’Neil of Kirkstone Road, Litherland, was found guilty of flytipping a bin bag full of rubbish in an alleyway off Kirk Road in Seaforth.  He was fined £472.  Cllr Paulette Lappin, Sefton Council's Cabinet Member for Read More
