Fly-tipping vehicle seized in early morning swoop

Fly-tipping vehicle seized in early morning swoop 1 - Penham Excel

 

Penham Excel were pleased to help Walsall Council community protection officers and the local Police on Thursday 6th October to seize a vehicle that had been used to dump large amounts of tyres and other waste on three separate occasions in the Willenhall area during September 2022.

Walsall Council’s community protection officers were unable to trace the vehicle by the registration number or by any other lines of enquiry and so a decision was made to issue a public appeal to help track down the vehicle’s whereabouts.

West Midlands Police officers were also asked to assist and with their help the vehicle was found, hidden away in a quiet corner of an industrial estate in Willenhall. The vehicle was seized within a week of the appeal going out so this is a fantastic achievement for Walsall Council. It also sends out a clear warning to other criminals.
