Swale council has released CCTV footage of two men it wants to speak to about fly-tipping in Sheerness.
It comes after a sofa was found dumped in an alleyway in Richmond Street earlier this month.
The images were captured by one of two mobile cameras which are installed in the town to tackle the problem and other incidents of anti-social behaviour.
Attempts to identify the people in the pictures with locals have proved unsuccessful so the authority is now appealing to the wider community for help.
Environment response manager Alister Andrews said they would like to speak to the two men as they may have information which could help with the council’s inquiries in relation to the sofa.
“We work closely with the residents in Sheerness, and we fully understand the problems that fly-tipping causes in these alleys,” he said.
“There is no excuse for fly-tipping.
“Kent County Council operates a waste site in Sheerness and we offer a bulky waste collection for just £17.60.
“Our enforcement officers are working hard to tackle those who blight the area in this way.”
The council’s enforcement officers found the sofa at around midday on Friday, April 4.
Anyone with information about it should phone Swale on 01795 417850.
Members of the public can also report fly-tipping online at www.swale.gov.uk
