DOB in the dumpers and help Huntingdonshire remain a rubbish-free district.
This is the belated new year's resolution we want Hunts Post readers to adopt in a bid to prevent our streets and countryside from being used a dumping ground.
If you see fly-tipped rubbish on public land, then call the hotline and Huntingdonshire District Council will clean it up. (When the rubbish is on private land, the owner has to take responsibility.)
If you see the fly-tippers carrying out the crime, then try to make a note of the registration number of any vehicle they are using, company logo or any evidence that will help find the culprits.

HDC already takes steps to clean up our district, but with your help we can drive out the dumpers and prevent scenes such as those discovered in St Ives where dozens of tyres were dumped.
Fisheries bailiff Ron Rogers, a retired engineer, contacted The Hunts Post to complain about the pile of old tyres that had been dumped at the end of Meadow Lane - some have been there for six months and others were dumped within the past week.

"The tyres are blocking the stream. I pass this every day and it's just a total eyesore," he said. "There are two blights on the environment here, one the tyres and two the morons who do this."
You can report an incident of fly-tipping to Huntingdonshire District Council by calling 01480 388640 or going to www.huntsdc.gov.uk and filling in the online fly-tipping form.
A spokesman for HDC said fly-tipping often involves items that are difficult or expensive to dispose of, such as tyres, mattresses, household appliances and rubbish left over from building or DIY projects.
She added that residents with information about people responsible for leaving waste could report the details anonymously.
