Almost all of us have experienced the problems associated with fly-tipping. Despite an increased focus on recycling and responsible waste management, littering and fly-tipping continue to rise as bin collections get less frequent. You can avoid the risk of your waste being fly-tipped by hiring a midi-skip from Martlands.
Hire a Skip: Don’t Fly Tip!
Fly tipping is anti-social and hazardous. Our fields, alleyways and roads can be plagued by rubbish. Just some of the problems of fly-tipping are:
- A pile of rubbish is an awful eyesore;
- Fly-tipping attracts pests like rats and flies, that can then infest nearby businesses and homes, causing damage and health problems for local residents.
- Waste that has been dumped can contain a number of dangerous articles and substances, such as broken glass or bleach. These substances damage the environment and are hazardous to human health.
- With organic waste, ingredients can be contained that are poisonous to animals such as dogs and cats.
Fly-Tipping Is On The Rise
Fly-tipping is getting more common than ever. Fly-tipping incidents have increased by over twenty per cent in the last few years, and over 800,000 incidents have been dealt with by local authorities recently. This all adds up and costs a billion pounds of taxpayers money every single year just to clean up the waste left by those who refuse to dispose of it safely.
Even if you don’t dump waste yourself it doesn’t mean it is disposed of responsibly. People get been prosecuted for using unlicensed waste carriers that then fly-tip the waste. If the waste gets tracked back to you, you will be fined and can get a criminal record. By hiring a skip from Martlands, you get peace of mind that trained professionals are dealing with your waste responsibly. If you need a safe and convenient way to get rid of rubbish, call us today.
