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.
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.
