Fly-tipping increases after bin collection overhaul

The amount of rubbish being dumped illegally on Reading streets has increased dramatically since the council overhauled the way bins are collected.

Five months ago, residents were told that extra bags could no longer be left out on bin day, and they would have to pay to have their green waste to be taken away.

Penny Silvester joined council enforcement officers on patrol to see the extent of the problem.

Penny spoke to resident Paul Banks and Gina Frost, a Reading Council Environment Officer.
