A large trailer loaded with old tyres has led a council to appeal to local residents for help in catching the fly-tippers who dumped it in a layby.
It was reported by a passing motorist who spotted it in Moorhouse Lane, Westerham, Kent, earlier this month.
Tandridge District Council said it was now facing a £2,000 bill to dispose of the rubbish, which was abandoned in a large old Boots trailer.
Officials from the Surrey council are trying to track down the last owner.
Councillor Eric Morgan said: "This is outrageous. This is not a small pile of rubbish, but a huge trailer loaded with old tyres.
"If we can't find who is responsible it is the council taxpayers who will end up footing the bill."
The council is offering a £500 reward for information leading to a successful prosecution for fly-tipping.
