A pile of flytipped rubbish that built up over months and at one point even included a car has finally been cleared away.
The waste was removed from a patch of private land off Exmouth Road on Friday, May 7.
The site has now been fenced off.
Mike Scott, manager of the company that leases the land, said that he organised a Lowestoft-based waste company, as well as his own employees with brushes and spades, to take it away.
Kerry Robinson Payne, borough councillor for Nelson ward, where the rubbish had been dumped, said the issue was first reported last year.
"Removing the rubbish was not as straightforward as it would have been if the flytipping had happened on public land. Certain legal procedures had to be gone through, which were time consuming," she said.
"Once the fly-tipping had started, other people started dumping stuff there, and it was getting bigger and bigger. It was an inconvenience for the residents.

"At one point there was a car there as well. We were really concerned about that," she added.
