Every year dirty dog owners, litter louts and fly-tippers cost the Council over £1m and officers spend thousands of man hours cleaning up the mess they leave behind - This is money and time that could be spent carrying out vital frontline services for the community of Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Dirty dog owners, litter louts and fly-tippers won’t be tolerated in Rhondda Cynon Taf - anyone suspected of carrying out these offences could be dealt a £100 Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN).
The Council is cracking down on suspected individuals and we need your help to identify them - the below images are of persons the Council would like to speak to in connection with a number of suspected offences and therefore their images have been posted on this website.
When a person is suspected of committing an offence is dealt with by an enforcement officer, they are told that they are being filmed, using body cameras.. A number of suspects give false details, or refuse to give any details at all, which means that the Council are unable to conclude their investigations in to the alleged offence.
We are looking for any information that could lead to these person(s) being identified, such as; name, address and or contact details - You do not have to give your name and you can report information in the strictest confidence.
Please remember to quote the WDI number listed on each of the above photos when contacting us.

Residents are reassured that no details will be shared and will only be used for the purpose of identifying those responsible.
