The hunt is on for fly-tippers who were caught on camera allegedly dumping waste in Hounslow .
Hounslow Council has appealed to the public to help track down these men who it says were captured on CCTV dumping an old mattress and bed base.
The pair were spotted by CCTV officers leaving the items on open land beside 47 Kingsley Road, Hounslow, in the early hours of Tuesday August 16, between 1am and 1.20am.
The men, who are described as having a Mediterranean complexion and a large build, were tracked by camera along Kingsley Road before disappearing from view.
The council issued the CCTV images on Friday (August 26), in an attempt to track down the culprits and to warn others they would not evade justice.
Fly-tipping costs the council £1.2m a year
Councillor Sue Sampson, Hounslow's cabinet member for enforcement, said: "Last year, the council spent £1.2m cleaning up fly tipping dumped by selfish people like these two men.
"This money could be better spent on essential services such as children in care or support for elderly residents.
"These men waited until the dead of night before dumping their rubbish, probably hoping that no one was watching. As well as keeping the borough safe, our CCTV staff also look out for people acting anti-socially and pass on footage to enforcement staff to follow up.
"No matter what time of the day or night we’re keeping an eye on what is happening on our borough’s streets.
"If you know who these men are, do the right thing and help us make an example of their behaviour.
"I hope publicly sharing these images acts as a deterrent to others thinking of doing the same – we're watching you."
Anyone who recognises the men is asked to email email@example.com or call 020 8583 5189. They will not have to give their name and all information will be treated as confidential.
