As local authorities throughout the country reduce their budgets, refuse collection and access to deposit trade waste at landfill sites is reducing and now becoming expensive.
The result of this is an increase in fly tipping as set out in the recent report by ITV (link below)
The costs to owners of sites who fall victim can be huge depending on the type of waste dumped with high removal costs and then the subsequent costs of disposing of the waste properly.
If you have a vacant site, you need to be very aware of this issue and take appropriate steps to prevent access and the illegal fly tipping.
We have advised clients on this previously and can provide methods to prevent access including concrete barriers, Heras fencing and bespoke access gates where required.
If you have a site which you are concerned about and would like some advice on how to protect it from fly tipping please do not hesitate to contact us by clicking here
