Mr Mallinder said the council offers a collection service for those who are unable to take rubbish to the tip.

He added: "I work hard to make sure we offer the best waste dispose in the country and we have a zero tolerance to fly-tipping.

"Such fly-tipping is frankly not acceptable. It is unnecessary, unpleasant and unsightly.

"Lets not forget such dumping of waste has a big impact on the environment, not only as an immediate danger but quickly breakdown into small particles that can be poisonous to humans and wildlife, eventually entering our water systems and food chains. 

"If you recognise these items or know who might have committed this crime please contact East Suffolk Council."
