Enough is enough! Anger over fly-tipping near Kintore

An extreme case of fly-tipping at Balbithan Woods near Kintore has been met with anger.

Rubbish including roof panels have been left dumped in the area.

Scottish Conservative MSP for Aberdeenshire West Alexander Burnett said: “It’s absolutely appalling that someone would use Balbithan Woods as a dumping ground for fly-tipping.

“Enough is enough – we must change the law in Scotland so that tougher punishments are put in place to stop these incidents from happening.”
