Appeal after abandoned trailers full of waste are found in Bromsgrove

An investigation by the Environment Agency has begun into four abandoned trailers full of waste that have appeared around Bromsgrove in the space of a week.

Officers are now appealing to members of the public for any information into the illegal dumping which all happened within five miles of each other in North Worcestershire.

The trailers all appear to be similar and therefore Environment Agency officers believe they are all linked to the same waste criminals.

It is believed that the first reported sighting of an abandoned trailer was on Sunday, July 12 2020.

A spokesperson for the Environment Agency, said: “We are appealing to members of the public who may have any information, however small, about the abandoned trailers full of waste to contact us as soon as possible to help with our investigation.

“They can call the 24-hour Environment Agency hotline or anonymously to Crimestoppers.

“The trailers are all in laybys on major roads and so we are hopeful that there may be witnesses to this criminal activity.

A spokesperson for the Environment Agency, said: “We are appealing to members of the public who may have any information, however small, about the abandoned trailers full of waste to contact us as soon as possible to help with our investigation.
