City council officers are visiting tyre dealers on this week to make sure they are safely disposing of their waste. Dealers are required by law to keep records of the transfer of scrap tyres to registered waste carriers.

Officers say they believe the tyres are being dumped by professional environmental criminals and are coming from one or more commercial sources.
