After 40 black bags were found fly-tipped in a lay-by just outside Castle Ashby South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) is appealing for witnesses.
 
On Friday, 27 January 2017 a member of the public informed SNC officers about the bags which contained soil and vegetation.
 
They were sighted in a lay-by north of Yardley Hasting at the junction of the roads to Grendon and Castle Ashby.
 
Cllr Dermot Bambridge said: “South Northants is a picturesque part of the world with rolling green hills, forests, farms and stately homes.
 
“So if we can get information which identifies this, or any fly-tipper, we will not hesitate in prosecuting them to the fullest extent.
 
“And that could be up to a year in prison and a £50,000 fine if they’re lucky enough to be dealt with by a Magistrate, and five years in prison and an unlimited fine if their actions are so severe they have to be dealt with by the Crown Court.”
 
Due to the volume of waste dumped it is thought a van was used during the fly-tip and SNC officers would like to speak to people who saw any suspicious activity in that area on Friday,27 January or during the few days before.
