Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen a huge increase in reported fly-tipping incidents as it ‘became more acceptable’ during the lockdown period. This is directly due to the lack of access to tips and waste collection facilities. Illegal dumping of waste does not only cause harm to the environment but also residents in the area and local businesses. Thousands of cases of fly-tipping are recorded each year and undoubtedly, the number is steadily increasing.
Make sure that the company you’re using for waste clearance is legally registered and you can check this quickly on the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs website: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers
