Shocking CCTV shows the moment a DPD delivery van driver brazenly dumps rubbish in two streets plagued by fly-tipping

Shocking CCTV shows the moment a DPD delivery van driver brazenly dumps rubbish in two streets plagued by fly-tipping. Angry locals have slammed the man who was captured dumping a mattress in one street and then later unloading rubbish in a second street on January 1. Courier firm DPD said it will be looking to identify the person seen in the footage and take further action. In one video, the driver is seen opening the back doors of his van and whipping out a mattress and leaving it next to a skip in a back alley behind Arnold Street in Bolton. In another, he is seen unloading more rubbish behind nearby St Augustine Street, just around the corner. A local resident, who did not wish to be named, fumed: “Fly-tipping in the area is not good enough. It just shouldn’t happen. “This time the person didn’t realise there was a camera and that people also saw them do it. “We want to make an example out of them so that this doesn’t happen again. “It costs the council a lot of money and they have to collect it, which they have been really good with.” Local councillor Rabiya Jiva, said fly-tipping has happened on numerous occasions in the area, but there hadn’t been any evidence until the footage. She said: “Bolton Council has been notified by multiple residents surrounding this incident and fly-tipping in the area, and enforcement action will be taken. “We want the area to be a cleaner and brighter place for all residents and people who live close by. “We also want people to use the tip services provided and report it when they see incidents like this and ring their local authorities.” The van driver later returned and collected the items. Residents say he told them them that he was going to take it to the tip, but it was closed at the time. In a DPD company statement, a spokesperson said: “At DPD we take the conduct of our people very seriously indeed, including their interaction with other road users, our customers and their property. “The behaviour of our driver here was unforgivable and completely unacceptable. “The driver will be identified and appropriate action will be taken.”
