Fly Tipping

This is what greeted people walking in the woods this morning: sometimes it's hard not to despair

Whoever is responsible for this fly-tipping this should hang their heads in shame; it's lazy, inconsiderate, disrespectful to the community ... oh, and it's illegal too.

This incident has been reported to East Lothian Council.

Macmerry Recycling Centre is open 7 days a week and is just 20 minutes drive away.
