However, Cllr Guthrie warned people to not use social media to find people to get rid of their rubbish as it could be them who "ends up in trouble." She added: “I would remind people that they must ensure anyone who takes their waste is authorised and has a permit to do so. "Do not use social media to find people to take waste away without first checking that they are authorised to take it. "Always request a transfer note with the details of what is being taken and who is taking it, as if it ends up fly tipped, it could be you that ends up in trouble."
