I took the trouble to pick through a pile of flytipped crap in the Dales National Park a few months back. Found a name and address for a householder whose shite had ended up there (including a cut up NHS ID card).
Passed it all onto Craven District Council. Clearly they couldn’t be arsed to either follow it up or pass it to someone who would, as I heard nothing back.Posted 4 years ago
I watched them dump this lot. Around lunchtime, broad daylight, in plain view of the road and offices, they just pulled up in a transit van, tipped it all out the back, then scarpered.
I ran down to try a get photos or a license plate, but they were gone by the time I got there.
Called it in to the council immediately who were very good: took a witness statement and sent out a guy to investigate it for evidence before they cleared it.Posted 4 years agoernie_lynchMember
It’s builder rubbish, someone who replaces soffits, like this guy Paul Green :Posted 4 years agokiloSubscriber
Not just a countryside problem. Round our way, Wimbledon, this has started happening, builders / workmen are just dumping neat piles of crap on wide pavements in quiet residential roads knowing the council will clear it up. Last week it was a pile of old tyres just stacked up and left.Posted 4 years ago

Hmmm, Watson. Maybe I will pass the receipt info onto the council. (And Checkatrade.)Posted 4 years agokayak23Subscriber
This is indeed scummy behaviour but you have to accept that the large charges made for disposing of commercial waste have lead to a big increase in such dumping.
Charges should be factored into any work carried out. Problem is that these lovely people charge for legitimate disposal but then just flytip to make more profit.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
I guess the problem is proving the link between the rubbish contents, and who actually dumped it.
with businesses I believe it’s their look out to hire a reputable disposal firm. Pretty sure if any of our PCs end up in landfill (or in someone’s back street) it’s our company that get a visit from police/council. Dunno how it works for individuals but I would have thought it was atleast first port of call for authorities, “prove to us who dumped your shit or you get the bill”Posted 4 years agorossateaseMember
And you’re assuming this is the first time he’ll have done this, I’m in the hang and flog em camp when it comes to fly tipping, do all that stuff listed above, council, check a trade, hell isn’t it illegal, would plod get involved, especially if he can solve it without coming from behind his computer screen?Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Some **** has dumped a load of asbestos waste on Tunnel hill. Now surrounded by some yellow tape, but in the wind this weekend i expect it’ll have blown all over.
A couple of times i’ve noted reg numbers of ‘dodgy’ looking vans parked up at entrances to the military areas, with a view to returning later and see if they’ve dumped contents. As the title said – scum.Posted 4 years ago
