I have found receipts (with their address) in rubbish dumped so here is what I do.
Can’t help thinking you’d have been better off letting the council find the receipt and prosecute them for fly-tipping.

They will have to pay postage plus a £1 to get the letter… They may think twice about ever doing it again.
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.Posted 3 years ago
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.

utterly indefensible behaviour and if it is them then they deserve to be severely punished for this. I hate the dumping of stuff illegallyPosted 3 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
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.

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.Posted 3 years ago
So there you have it, where I live it never happens 😆

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.Posted 3 years agoSpeshpaulSubscriber
“ernie_lynch – Member
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.”
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.Posted 3 years ago
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 :Posted 3 years ago

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.Posted 3 years agoduncancallumSubscriber
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.

As previously stated it is the responsibilty of the waste (of whatever type ) generator to ensure the waste is desposed of legally.Posted 3 years ago
If your employing someone to do this on your behalf, you need to ensured they’re licenced to do so – ask for a copy of it?
Then once they’ve deposed of it legally they’ve have a waste transfer note, get a copy of this also – without these YOU’LL be liable ….!simmySubscriber
There’s regular fly tipping spots round my local trails just outside Bolton, they have been like that for years.
Just inside neighbouring Wigan councils area on one of my regular rides, they have put a big gate up and it’s locked permently. They had a massive problem in that location and tried CCTV etc but they just came along on false plates and couldn’t be traced.
The gate is a bit of a PITA for the 2 houses on that back road, but at least they can get in and out now without coming round the bend and crashing into a dumped Fridge / Sofa.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
I see all sorts of crap dumped around North Wilts, old PC’s, sofas, lots of tree cuttings…Posted 3 years ago
One of the oddest was a huge pile, possibly fifteen or twenty, of those great big orange gas cylinders, by the side of the Ridgeway, must have been a couple of hundred metres from the nearest road.
Why dump those? Surely they at least carry a deposit, or can be returned and exchanged for full ones?
The logic behind dumping a large pile of steel with at least a decent scrap value escapes me.
And who would be most likely to be dumping four foot long gas cylinders?
