With over 1 million fly-tipping incidents each year in the UK, it’s easy to see why local councils are doing all they can in order to catch the culprits. Here in the West Midlands fly-tipping levels equates to 15 in every 1000. With skip hire so easy, why do so many people fly-tip?
Access To Waste Disposal Sites
There are many areas throughout the UK that have limited access to waste disposal sites, aka the local tip. This means that in these areas illegal dumping is rife. However, here in Stoke on Trent, our waste management site has excellent facilities and some of the best opening times and availability. They offer separate areas for each type of waste.
Excess Household Waste
With growing families throughout the area, it’s not surprising that there is an increase in general household waste for many of these homes. In many cases, a larger bin can be requested based on the number of people living in the property. You would need to contact your local council directly to discuss this.
A larger bin, while it takes a phone call, and in some areas, a small charge, will be much more convenient than dumping waste. And will also work out cheaper should you be caught fly-tipping.
Price Of Skips
For many, there is the concern that skips are an expensive method of waste disposal. And while we appreciate that this may detour some, the skip prices that we offer here at Staffordshire Skip Hire are as low as we can possibly keep them, making our services as accessible as possible for all.
Bogus Waste Removal
There has been an increase in the number of fake removal companies here in the area, with many fly-tipping sites the equivalent of a small van load. The vehicles used for fly-tipping tend to be unbranded vans, which can be a key red flag if you are having your waste removed by a company.
There are long-term fly-tipping individuals that are portraying themselves as legitimate businesses. However, they are causing the environment agency a number of issues with their fly-tipped waste.
Unfortunately, with the number of fly-tipping incidents on the rise, our council tax is being used to remove the waste, rather than improving the local area of Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire. Therefore if you report fly-tipping as soon as you notice it, it can be investigated and hopefully, the individuals can be apprehended.
