Fly Tipping Concerns

The Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning and Transport (ADEPT) are developing concerns about the unintended consequences of the government’s fly-tipping consultation.

Defra’s consultation, which was published on the 11th of April proposed banning charges on DIY waste and to review their existing booking systems at household waste and recycling centres (HWRCs).

Defra are confident that these proposed changes will help reduce fly-tipping and littering of this material, which has risen by 20% this year.

However, sector experts have warned that if implemented, the measures will have “unintended consequences” because councils could have to fund DIY projects waste disposal at the expense of supporting vulnerable communities and individuals most in need.

Council finances are stretched beyond breaking point with rising inflation bringing even more pressure on local authority budgets.

Fly-tipping usually occurs for rubbish that is usually difficult to dispose of, or to recycle and would typically incur fees such as landfill tax were a responsible waste management company to handle it appropriately.

Issues such as fly-tipping has severe Environmental consequences, so that a trusted, responsible and reliable Waste Management firm is employed to manage.

One such Company is the Mick George Group. Fully registered with the Environment Agency and other accredited bodies, they are leading independent waste management specialists that cover every aspect of collection, recycling and disposal of waste generated by industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
