Fly Tipping Bristol

We are all aware that fly-tipping is prohibited, yet it still happens all the time.  In 2018/2019, the local authorities in England dealt with 1,072,000 incidents of fly-tipping. That is an astonishing 8 percent rise on the year earlier.  A third of the incidents involved household waste, although the most common place for fly-tipping to happen was on public highways (pavements and streets ). 

Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and it’s punishable by a fine of up to 50,000 or up to five years’ imprisonment.

What is Fly-tipping?

Fly-tipping is described as ‘the illegal deposit of any waste on land that does not have a license to accept it.  This waste can be either liquid or solid and the amount of waste can vary in scale.  The most common size category for fly-tipping incidents from the year 2018/2019 was the equivalent of a ‘small van load’.  This was approximately 33 percent of the fly-tipping incidents recorded. This was followed closely by ‘car boot or less’ with 30 percent of the incidents with this size.  The expense of fly-tipping to British taxpayers is 58 million per year. 

Why do people fly-tip?

Fly-tipping is usually down to both laziness and saving cash.  Having your waste removed can cost money.  It can also cost money to get rid of waste at your local household waste recycling centre yourself.  Some people today think they can get around these prices by dumping their waste on public highways or private land.  There are many instances of people fly-tipping on private car parks and drives, so blocking the way for the residents who live nearby.

Why is fly-tipping bad?

as well as using undesirable rubbish on your property, there are lots of other reasons why fly-tipping is prohibited.  It can be dangerous – any sharp items can be a danger to both humans and animals in the region in which it’s been dumped.  There have been instances where dogs are injured whilst on a walk since fly-tippers have dropped building waste in the region.  Risks to local wildlife can include creatures consuming waste or getting trapped or injured inside.  Fly-tipping also can influence our enjoyment of an area.  It can turn an area of natural beauty into a dumping ground and somewhere that nobody wants to visit. A great deal of this waste that’s fly-tipped can be recycled.  If it had been taken to a suitable household waste recycling centre, then it might be sorted and recycled correctly.  Uncontrolled illegal waste could contain toxic substances that are harmful to the environment, wildlife and us humans too.

What occurs to fly-tipped waste?

unfortunately, the fly-tipped waste is usually left to the landowner to eliminate.  If you’re unlucky enough to possess waste left on your land, you could have the ability to get your local council to eliminate some of it.  Otherwise, you’re likely to need to pay a garbage clearance company to eliminate it.
