This attempt to take the landfill to a new level is just one example of the worrying increase in flying flies in Wirral.

In the last six years, flies in the community have increased by nearly 40%, with more than 3000 incidents last year.

The locals are deeply upset about the problem on the peninsula.

Lorraine Taylor wrote on the Wirral Gossip Original Facebook group: "It's a shame that some people think it's okay to get rid of their trash this way."



A pile of bags on Kingsley Avenue in Eastham

Helen Lambert, who lives nearby, commented on the above picture: "I'm not sure how long it was there. I walked with my son on my dog ​​and enjoyed the view when I saw her. I was horrified

"So much of it – and such a mess. I was sorry for the people who lived across the estate. Then I saw and talked to a man I knew, and he said that it happened all the time. "

Mrs. Lambert decoded the problem of flapping flies in general and said, "Yes, it is definitely a problem.

"I often see it driving around locally – on the Eastham Rake route, under the M53, towards Willaston and on the Allport Road route, past Raby and that way towards Neston.

"I can not understand why they are not interested enough in our beautiful environment to use the local tip!"



The fly-tipping in Storeton Woods ruins the view of an otherwise pleasant forest

Tilting is a problem throughout the community. These pictures of Storeton Woods near Higher Bebington are perhaps the most unfortunate in this article.

The mattresses could easily destroy smaller creatures and spoil the view of the pleasant woodland.

CaIvin Otway, a local delivery agent, sees a lot of tips in the south of the district: "Personally, I do not know if it's going to get any worse, but I can see more of it now, as I'm a deliverer for a pharmacy in Neston.

"I drive on many dirt roads and there seems to be a lot going on at different times."



There was a sofa on the side in Pensby, as if it would fit in the trash can next to it.

Allison Ogden-Newton, managing director of Keep Britain Tidy, said that dumpers often do not know they break the law.

Enlightenment was the answer for them: "A national program to educate the public on the dangers and costs of flapping flies is now required as we have evidence of a serious and rapidly escalating problem in this country as we dispose of our waste.

"We suspect that the reality, as bad as these numbers are, could be even worse, as many fly-flu incidents are classified as waste and not counted.

"We need a program of education and engagement in every local authority in the country so that the public understands the law and the impact of their behavior both financially and ecologically."

Ms. Ogden-Newton was interested in highlighting the financial implications of flipping flies.

It costs taxpayers a lot of money each year.

She said, "Our research shows that many people do not know that they are doing something illegal by outsourcing black bags or small items, because the councils clean them up extremely quickly and efficiently to keep our streets clean and not human Saying what they are doing is wrong.

"The reality is that it is fueling the fly epidemic and costing taxpayers many millions to clean up.

"The UK is becoming a divided country where more people than ever worry about the environment and waste while more and more people are dumping their garbage and destroying the same environment others want to protect."
