Flytipping will increase if a recycling centre is closed or has its hours reduced further, warn residents.

Essex County Council is reviewing 21 centres, including those in Springfield Road, Burnham, and Park Drive, Maldon.

None have been identified for closure or reduced hours.

However, the Burnham centre had its opening hours cut to four days a week in 2012, saving £49,000 a year.

Now residents are trying to save it from any further cuts.

Town councillor Jack Sheppard said: “We are supposed to be having an increase in population but we are having a decrease in services."
