AN angry businessman has warned fly-tippers will face prosecution if they continue to use his property as a dumping ground.
David MacDougall, manager of Café V8, used Facebook to issue the warning after being confronted with a load of waste, including a fridge-freezer, window frames and building materials.
It was dumped in the car and lorry park beside the venue in Henderson Street on the Longman Industrial Estate.
Alongside a photograph of the mess left behind, he wrote: “We are trying to run a family business and have to deal with petty things like this.
“We have seen and watched you through our CCTV and know who you are. If this happens again we will unfortunately have to contact the police because this is utter disrespect and laziness.
“It is just not on. We will not tolerate it.”
Adding to the irritation, Café V8 is close to Highland Council’s Inverness recycling centre.
“It’s round the corner but they just don’t care,” Mr MacDougall told the Courier, before adding that his business was not alone in suffering from the attention of fly-tippers.
“The tipping has been horrendous, but I think it has been a problem everywhere in Inverness and outwith. I don’t think it’s just us.”
