An appeal has gone out to find the culprits of flytipping near Horsham this week, which included asbestos which is dangerous to wildlife and expensive to clear up.

Horsham District Council posted on Facebook this week that the incident was on Bush Lane, off Rusper Road north of the A264, on Monday or Tuesday this week.

The council adds that if you see flytipping you should report it to them so they can investigate and clear it quickly.

Comments on social media have also mentioned flytipping incidents near Pease Pottage, and at Forest Road, Colgate.

The council has flagged up the fact that if you hire someone to remove waste from your property, you could be fined if they fly-tip the waste.

It is your responsibility to check that any tradesperson you hire arranges for a registered carrier of waste to deal with any waste at the end of a project.

For example, they could hire a skip or, if they intend to dispose of the waste themselves, they must have a waste carriers licence.

If they do not have one, you should not use them.

If your waste is fly-tipped, you could be fined.
