- Filthy Fly Tipping Scum
Yeah, I’ve reported it. More local council money wasted by some selfish prick who doesn’t give a f*** about anybody else. Bastards.
It beggars belief that people can be arsed to drive out to the middle of nowhere (usually somewhere quiet and picturesque) and dump a load of shit in preference to taking it to the tip. Why not flytip it at the tip!Posted 4 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember

If your council is anything ours: vans arent welcome at all sites. Also vans have to pay at those that will accept them. This is the source of the problem really (along with being a prick).Posted 4 years agoThe PinksterSubscriber
Why not flytip it at the tip
Because of the exorbitant charges that councils now present to companies using their tips as part of their government imposed ‘green tax’ on waste recycling.
It’s far cheaper to dump it on a side road somewhere and let the council collect it for you for free.

On a much smaller scale, this morning I saw a woman sitting in a queue of traffic throw a cigarette packet out of her window as I passed her. I said “you’ve just dropped something” but it blew away before I could throw it back into the car with a helpful smile on my face!Posted 4 years ago
Honestly, what is wrong with some people!? Found this on my commute this morning, it completely blocks the entry/exit to a footbridge over a very fast & busy A road. The bridge is a continuation of the bridleway so this will mean any horses that need to cross will have try and cross the A road. Absolute effin morons. When I’m king, fly tipping will be a capital offence! 😈
I’m actually half wondering if the farmer who presumably owns the track has dumped it, there’s a gate blocking the entrance off the road most of the time so it would have to have been very opportunist otherwise. Whoever it is, they make me sick!

There’s been an increase of fly tipping round here after the council decided to shut the all tips at 5pm Monday to Friday,Posted 4 years ago
And a bloke on our street has just been done for operating an asbestos removal company and then illegally storing and fly tipping the asbestos rather than disposing of it properly, he had seventy odd large skips filled with asbestos at his unlicensed private tip when they nicked him and was paying his driver to fly tip as well as collect,
fined, suspended sentence and 200 hours of CS.. 😕
He got gobby at the mrs once when he blocked the drive with a skip lorry and she asked him to move it, walked down the drive and got in her face gobbling off.. he squealed like a bitch when the staffy chased him back off the drive chomping at his arse.., 😀
His name rhymes with tosser as well…jambalayaSubscriber
This is a disgrace but ….. it’s entirely the result of changes in the law/council policy that means taking the rubbish to the tip is expensive for “commercial operators”. I once went with some old bricks in the car a d was told they were commercial waste and I’d have to pay, also been in a rented van and told I wasn’t welcome despite it being full of recyclables – I had to return in the car.Posted 4 years agoprojectMember
I have a van and a van permit for my stuff to go to the recycling centre, i also work in peoples homes, and quite often they tell me to take their old doors etc to the tip, when i point out its their product and i dont have a waste carriers licence from the environment agency, some whinge like mad at the cost of the council pickup charge,and say i should pay it for them, they obviously hadnt factored in the cost of disposal of their old product.
But they either pay for a skip, or dispose of it themselves.
Finally if you ever see a fridge or freezer flytipped, either remove the doors, or smash the hinges or remove the seals, just so children dont get trapped in it.Posted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
It’s huge problem in the lanes near us, piles of building site waste literally dumped in the middle of the road.
It’s become a bit of a cottage industry amongst the local ne’er do wells, they just go round the local sites and offer to ‘dispose’ of waste for less than it costs at the council tip, take payment in cash, no questions asked, easy money with little chance of consequences.
They’ve even started ramming gates off their hinges so that they can dump their crap.
The laws are there but enforcement is woefully rare and the punishments almost negligible.

If waste is fly tipped on commercial premises it did effectively become the problem of the business owner. There should be some more up to date guidance on the Environment Agency website. It may be worth having a rummage around to see if there is anything which can pin point where the waste came from – old invoices, receipts etcPosted 4 years agonotmyrealnameSubscriber
I’m currently away from home and staying in the South Downs area. It’s such a novelty to be able to walk or ride along footpaths and bridleways down here without having to dodge huge pikes of crap that the pikeys have fly tipped.Posted 4 years ago
Fly tipping is one of my biggest pet hates, I absolutely detest it.Edric 64Member
I live in Bath and drive a van .If I want to use the tip I have to register my vehicle to my address but think its car only .If I drive to Trowbridge in Wiltshire they dont mind vans or the bathrooms worth of tiles and crap I took there and it was free .If I go to Wells in Somerset they are usually really lenient but a bag of tiles cost 3 quid to dispose of .So thats 3 councils and different rules in each one and reduced opening times to save moneyPosted 4 years ago
I assume the money saved is then spent clearing up fly tipping which if done on private land then isnt the councils responsibility.schnorSubscriber
Don’t worry woody, fly-tipping on a PRoW (or any other Highway) is the responsibility of the Local Authority to remove.
As mentioned above, if its on private land (or as happens occasionally with me after its dumped initially, the landowner discreetly moves it onto a nearby RoW – which I can’t really blame them for TBH) its up to the landowner to remove. Sometimes it can be very expensive to sort out, particularly with hazardous material.Posted 4 years agonickjbSubscriber
So, by reporting it, does that mean someone from the council then gets in touch with the landowner
Not round here. I reported some waste oil left in buckets on the lane to our garage block. Council just said it was private property and they wouldn’t deal with it. I did wonder about moving it 10 metres to the road and phoning them back, no idea who the landowner is.Posted 4 years agoTuckerUKMember

FFS, have a word. I’ve just strategically placed lots of freezers complete with enticing sweets around our neighborhood, I **** hate kids! Leave my traps be!Posted 4 years ago
