Items including children’s toys, a window frame and a shopping trolley have been fly-tipped in Worle.
The discoveries were made by Worle Nature Watch and Big Worle wildlife walkers with rubbish dumped from Queensway to Castle Batch.
This year a number of fly-tipping cases have been reported in the area including a pile of rotten food left in Banwell and 65 sheets of asbestos material found in Kingston Seymour.
Worle councillor Denise Hunt told the Mercury: “Worle is a great place to live but its worrying we are now seeing the lanes used for fly-tipping.
“It really isn’t acceptable and costs council tax payers money to have North Somerset Council clear it up, money which could otherwise be spent on frontline services for our community.
