/ Fly-tipping at Windgather
I was up at Windgather last monday (9th April) and was appalled to see a large dump of domestic rubbish on the road just before the stile. I contacted my local council (Cheshire East) but haven't heard back from them (they have multiple problems with crooked council officials, so are perhaps are not quite on-the-ball at the mo). Has anyone been up there more recently and so seen/not seen said eyesore? I'd like to hear!
Don't know about that sorry.
Came upon one when walking dog once and he quickly put stuff back in van. Was alone so didn't say any thing as he was with his mates.
They are low on the scale of life forms on the planet.
No fly-tipping in evidence today.
Cheers! Thank goodness for that! I just hope it won't happen again
Unfortunately it's endemic everywhere. With restrictions on vans going in to council tips even if it is domestic rather than trade waste, big ques at the tips, people being lazy ignorant bastards. I saw a very posh looking lady wearing a suit get out of he Audi once and dump a couple of bin bags from the boot on to the road, unfortunately I was the other side of the river and couldn't get her registration.

It happens frequently in the area....I live down the road so windgather and the goyt are pretty much my back yard and lots of the laybay's are fly tipped.
It came as a shock as I climb at Windgather often - have done for years, and never seen such before. As you know Cheshire East has introduced charges for leaving building debris, rubble etc at the tip - but this was domestic, and could have been off-loaded at the proper place - unless local to Kettleshume, then I suppose it's a combination of ignorance and idleness
Don't let em off the hook by allowing them the ignorance defence. It's deliberate, antisocial behaviour ..
