Rubbish dumping
Rubbish dumping 'hot spot'

Keeping Westminster’s streets clean is a top priority for the new Labour Council. Stopping the rubbish dumpers is a real challenge, but we are now working on a trial using CCTV cameras located in three dumping ‘hot spot’ areas of Westminster. 

Cameras have now been installed at the three dumping ‘hot spot’ locations and the cameras are sending footage to the viewing platform which uses Artificial Intelligence to identify suspected fly tippers. 

The City Inspectors review the camera footage and where a vehicle is identified as being involved in a fly tipping incident, the registered vehicle keeper details will be requested from DVLA. Once an alleged offender is identified, formal enforcement action will be commenced either by way of an interview under caution or by the issuing of a penalty notice.

The three locations are:

  • Denbigh Street, at the junction of St George’s Drive/Lupus Street by the Big Black Bin site
  • Foley Street in Fitzrovia
  • Warlock Road, at the junction with Walterton Road at the micro recycling centre

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Cabinet Member for City Management and Air Quality, said:

“If this trial is successful we will extend it across other ‘hot spots’ in Westminster and will continue to take strong action against the rubbish dumpers.”
