Erewash Borough Council’s licensing team and its neighbourhood wardens staged a joint patrol recently to check out scrap metal collectors operating in the borough.

The exercise was carried out after the council received calls from the trade asking it to clamp down on unlicensed collectors working in the area.

A patrol of the borough discovered one unlicensed collector working around the Borrowash and Breaston areas. A second collector was also contacted after the licensing team was given information on an unlicensed collection taking place in Briar Gate, Long Eaton.
