FLY TIPPING WARNING
When you need to get rid of junk,you need to follow a simple code that will ensure you have fulfilled your duty of care.
To avoid the possibility of House Clearance Fly Tipping
Follow the S.C. R. A. P code before you hire someone to remove your waste:
Suspect all waste carriers. Don’t let them take your rubbish until they provide proof of registration. Note their vehicle’s registration plate.
Check that a waste carrier is registered on the Environment Agency’s website.
Refuse any unexpected offers to have your rubbish taken away.
Ask how your rubbish will be disposed of – seek evidence of this.
Paperwork must be obtained: a proper invoice, waste transfer note or receipt, including a description of the waste being removed and the waste carrier’s contact details.
Be aware of Your Responsibilities
Unse only a licensed waste carrier for your house clearance job.
We Can Stamp Fly Tipping Out
Using a licensed carrier is more expensive than using a cowboy fly tipper. The people who hire these cowboys are equally guilty of the environmental crimes being committed on a daily basis.
Following the S.C.R.A.P code shows you have shown care and responsibility with your rubbish. This could be important if your house clearance junk is disposed of by fly tipping..
Not all registered waste carriers can charge to remove your junk. There are different types of waste carrier. The one that can LEGALLY take your waste will have a registration number beginning with CBDU.
The Cost Of Illegal Operators
Fly tipping has a serious environmental impact. The cost of clearing fly tipped junk is a huge burden.
A Lancashire council spent more than £3m on cleaning up litter and fly-tipping in one year.
Blackpool Council spent £3.7 million ridding their roads and pavements of rubbish, amounting to £24.18 per person, between April 2018 and March 2019.
This contributed to the mammoth £17.8 million spent on cleaning up litter and fly-tipping by all 14 local Lancashire authorities during that time.
