A large pile of foam, used paint buckets, bins and a trolley were dumped behind a street in Norfolk.
The flytip was spotted at the back of York Way in the Abbey Estate in Thetford on Tuesday, November 4.
Terry Jermy, a Thetford town, Breckland district, and Norfolk county councillor, spotted the tip while on a walkabout with fellow councillor Chris Harvey.
He said: “I’ve been out today with Councillor Chris Harvey undertaking a walkabout. Very disappointed to see another huge fly tip on the Abbey Estate. Fly tipping remains a significant issue locally.”
Breckland District Council said the rubbish was removed quickly and said flytipping was down from last year.
A spokesman said: “We are disappointed that a small minority of people choose to flytip their waste, which spoils our attractive district for other residents and visitors.
“Overall, the number of flytips recorded in Breckland is down on 2016-17 and we hope it will continue to fall in the New Year.
