Fly tipping is defined as the ‘illegal deposit of any waste onto the land that does not have a licence to accept it’ or if simply put the illegal dumping of waste. The waste can be liquid or solid in nature and can vary in size. A fly tipping clearance service helps remove illegally dumped rubbish and waste from a property or location.
It is the illegal dumping of rubbish, bulky items, liquids and toxins in areas where dumping is not permitted. A fly tip can be very dangerous to the environment, humans, animals and waterways because there is no control over what is being dumped and so hazardous and non-degradable items contaminate our environment. It poses a very real risk to our watercourses and soil quality and the problem has escalated so much in the UK that fly tipping is considered a very serious criminal offence for which unlimited fines and prosecution are some of the punishments to be expected, if found guilty.
These dumping grounds make an area or neighbourhood look ugly and rundown piled up with bulky items and unsightly rubbish. They also pose a physical threat with the possibility of toppling and exposure to hazards such as rusty nails and toxic materials. Insects and vermin naturally gravitate towards rubbish piles spreading both germs and the rubbish around. There is also the threat of fire outbreaks and toxins seeping into the soil.
Even though it is illegal, when a load of rubbish is dumped others tend to follow turning the location into an illegal dumping spot. Fly tipping is such a problem because unfortunately people always look for the easy way to dispose of their rubbish without following through on proper procedures.
Taking care of our environment is important from stopping littering to dumping waste into the sea and waterways. When littering turns into fly tipping or illegal dumping it causes additional issues and problems for residents and business owners in the area. Fly tip clearance services are a smart and convenient way to remove the waste safely and in compliance with local authority legislations. It is the preferred method of private landowners to clear and clean their lands of illegal rubbish dumping while ensuring that the waste is disposed of correctly.
By nature fly tipped waste tends to be bulkier items that people dump to avoid paying for proper removal or the waste disposal costs which are generally charged by weight. So despite the risk fly tipping is still very much a problem. To remove the rubbish a clearance service will provide the correct vehicles needed for the job, along with other machinery needed to clear the rubbish completely. They will also provide the manpower with the proper gear to carry out the clearance safely.
