TELE-EYE STAMPS OUT LITTER BUGS AT BOTTLE BANK

TeleEye stamps out litter bugs at bottle banks!

CCTV manufacturer TeleEye has helped tackle illicit rubbish dumping and fly-tipping throughout 15 local authorities in the Republic of Ireland. TEC Security Services installed TeleEye CCTV transmission systems to allow remote operators to view live images and record evidence of unlawful littering at multiple recycling points and common fly-tipping sites. An in-built audio facility enables the operators to give verbal instructions to legitimate site users or issue warning messages to litter louts – a feature cited by TEC Security as essential to the systems effectiveness.
Recycling points are often swamped with dumped boxes and bags used to hold the recycling. If this happens at a TEC Security managed site, the offender is requested to remove the litter with an automated message stating, “This is the Council. We see that you are dumping your bags. Please put them back in the car.” In most cases this is sufficient to get the offender to comply. Where individuals refuse to comply, their image and vehicle registration details are recorded, to establish their home address, and a fine is subsequently issued.
A similar process is applied at common fly-tipping sites. In this case, offenders are notified that they are being recorded, given an on-the-spot fine of up to €150 for illegal refuse disposal and warned they could be prosecuted.
The system has successfully reduced tipping and littering, saving the council literally €millions of tax payers money on clearing up refuse and effecting prosecutions.
TEC Security CEO Stephen Tyrell commented; “500 offenders have been caught in just 3 months, putting out a resolute message and practically stopping the problem in its tracks. We offer an effective service that Councils need and want. The TeleEye equipment gives us the audio messaging facility and high quality evidence we need for successful prosecutions. Above all, we are pleased to help combat this anti social behaviour and make the environment a more pleasant place for everyone.”
