  • He might be large but if he’s working on roofs changing soffits etc he’s probably quite agile and flexible.

    I’ve known some very large roofers more agile than gorillas 🙂

    “The owner of the rubbish is the builder, he went out and bought the stuff, the fact he had soffit left over has nothing to do with the home owner, imo. “

    Oh you would be surprised!
    We had a site that following a road improvement was on the end of a dead end. Top tipping stop!
    It became a 3 times a week visit to manage down the tippers.
    Most of them are so **** stupid they leave a ID, address, receipt, account number, A PASSPORT!!!!.
    We caught the same PVC windows guy twice! made him come back and clear up photographed him doing it.
    “Hello Mrs Jones, I’m X from Y, I understand that you have had new PVC windows fitted. How do I Know?….
    We have instructed our contractor to clear the site in 2 days time, at a cost of £500. which we will pursue you for.”
    Never failed yet.

    I have found receipts (with their address) in rubbish dumped so here is what I do. Put the receipt in an envelope and send it to them without a stamp!! They will have to pay postage plus a £1 to get the letter. I put a note inside saying I found this receipt in a load of rubbish dumped at such and such a place. They may think twice about ever doing it again.

    Can’t help thinking you’d have been better off letting the council find the receipt and prosecute them for fly-tipping.

    (Though I accept I may be putting too much faith in the legal process).

    Someone has too much faith in scum having the ability to think.

    That’d scare me off!

    Or I’d just stop adding blatantly incriminating evidence to my fly tips.

    Or if I was super-cunning (by Oirish traveller standards) I’d leave a note with someone else’s address!

    I’m wasted in my job.

    Never occurred to me that it might be travellers.

    In fact, there was a receipt lying next to the mound of crap:
    I am surprised you failed to link the dumping and a caravan site together before you started this thread and I thank god STW was here to make this massive leap of deductive logic for you.
    Claiming you did not realise when you started it I call this The clarkson defence

    utterly indefensible behaviour and if it is them then they deserve to be severely punished for this. I hate the dumping of stuff illegally

    We caught the same PVC windows guy twice! made him come back and clear up photographed him doing it.

    So it was the contractor then not the home owner.

    Funny eh. I just have no prejudice against travellers, weirdo that I am.

    Is this a “southren” phenomenon, I don’t see a lot of evdidence of fly tipping where I live, Central Scotland. There are TV programmes about it but, as I can only stand them for about 15s, it always seems to be darn saarth. Not trying to make any point in particular here just curious if this is the case. [/anti-flame disclaimer]

    Scots come down south to dump their rubbish. FACT

    That’s OK, I always stick a wheelie bin’s worth in the boot when I head north and pop it off at the side of the M74.

    In all the years I’ve been hacking the South Downs I can’t honestly think of one serious fly dumping incident, ok I’ve seen loads of branches and grass cuttings the other side of Bishops Waltham but that has to be about it.
    So there you have it, where I live it never happens 😆

    My photo was from the Newcastle area, so not very southern.

    Mind you I saw plenty of fly-tipping when I lived in Glasgow and Edinburgh too, so maybe you’re just lucky or you don’t ride places where they tend to tip?

    Hmm, this was on the South Downs. 5 minutes ride from the very South Downs Way, in fact.

    tbh I see very little in the North – I can only think of one in the last few years tbh and it was a little smaller than the Dez B example

    Thankfully we have acres and acres of wasteland [ brown field sites] for them to dump on rather than drive into the few areas of scenery we have to dump.

    Anyone not transporting their own waste needs a waste transport licence or something similar in name, and an id card, they can be stoped by vosa and vehicle impounded if they dont have the correct paperwork.

    probably just more likely to be seen by teenage stoners in their corsas on my side 😉

    I can only think of one pile and that is within the last few months so it is rare thankfully

    It’s really dumb dumping stuff like that.

    Everyone knows the proper way to dump it is into a canal or river.

    These northern types are very good at mend and make do, they need to save their pennies.

    Do we need to email P Green and let him know the good news? i.e. his rubbish has been found and it’s ready for him to collect?

    Dez, email the Portsmouth Evening News they love this sort of stuff.
    Probably get a better response then from the council alone.

    Ok ernie here we go, the contractor is the Home owners agent, acting on their behalf – Contract- contractor. If it comes off your house and you have paid someone to dispose of it, you still have to ensure they do it legally.

    By following them to the tip?

    At some point it has to be assumed you made reasonable checks and the person who did it was the one who broke the law.
    IANAL – link to law as well please

    Interested as that seems harsh

    Sometimes reporting it does get results.

    A load of kitchen waste got dumped in a disused quarry on a neighbour’s farm.

    He called out Environmental Health and they traced it to a curry shop in a nearby town and fined them.

    If it comes off your house and you have paid someone to dispose of it, you still have to ensure they do it legally.

    In this particular case the stuff we’re talking about it (at least most of it) doesn’t appear to have been removed from the client’s home, it’s left over, eg, the contractor bought too much or whatever. Not something you would expect the client to have any control over.

    But I get your point.

    BTW you did say that it was the contractor not the home owner that you collared :

    It was still waste from a customers job.

    “BTW you did say that it was the contractor not the home owner that you collared “

    no I didn’t, I said it became a top tipping site, we caught lots of people. including the same contractor twice. By identifying the address of the home owners (delivery address’s on the PVC window packaging) telling them we would pursue them and they got on to their contractor who they had paid to dispose of the waste, to collect the waste. The same guy in two cases about 10 days apart.

    its a probkem round rivvy couches, fridges and general shite. the iinlaws get it bad in radcliffe as they live on an old farm.

    I was upset though at landegla with the amount of discarded water bottles and food wrappers. And that in a way is worse.

    Poor splelling any grammar as on cheapo tablet
