There has been a rise in fly-tipping, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic; local authorities dealt with approximately 1.13 million fly-tipping incidents in 2020/2021, up approximately 16% from 2019/2020. Fly-tipping is said to cost up to £392 million a year.

There is no excuse for anyone to be dumping rubbish. Not only is this a criminal offense, it’s unsightly and potentially dangerous for the environment and public health. It also affects the whole community as council taxpayers end up with the bill for the clean-up operation.

Let us collectively tackle this, hence: “we ask anyone who spots fly-tipping to contact their local authority.” The message from local councils is: “Report it and we will sort it.”

We, as a company, do our part by conducting daily litter picking between the junction of the A41, passed HMP Stoke Heath to our place of work. We can and have collected up to half a refuse bag of rubbish per day.

If you wish to dispose of any waste, regardless of waste type please contact us and we will advise.
