Ayresome ward councillors Denise Rooney and Vic Walkington have been working on behalf of residents to resolve problems which continually occur on land around Northern Road and Springfield Road.
Working together, landowners Gleeson and Middlesbrough Council have undertaken a big clean-up of the area.
And to prevent the problems re-occurring, extra cameras are being placed at the site and Council enforcement teams will be paying regular visits.
Gleeson have also agreed to keep the grass cut on the site.
The councillors are now asking residents to do their bit by reporting any fly-tipping or rubbish dumping as soon as they see it.
In a statement, Cllrs Rooney and Walkington said: “We know this has been an eyesore for many years and after much discussion Gleeson have at last agreed to keep the grass cut during the growing season.
“Gleeson, working with the Council, tidied up the land to help with the grass cutting.
“The land is still private which means the Council cannot go onto it to clear any rubbish.
“However Gleeson and the Council can work together to bring prosecutions for any fly-tipping in the area.
“Fly-tipping is a blight and it is also an offence for which the Council can and will prosecute.”
