Almost all of the councils charge for removal of rubbish, as a consequence its costing the councils a lot more trying to manage flytipping, plus the local tips wanting various id, etc make it easier for people to take a chance and dump. Back lanes are particularly susceptible to dumping, we talk cameras but how many areas are going to be covered, there's no one solution. |
Newcastle recently siezed a van that was caught dumping, the same guy had another van within 24 hours, unless the courts are willing to impose hefty fines, it will continue, in some areas local authorities have stopped prosecuting as the fine imposed by the local courts were so pathetic it was costing the local authorities more to take them to court than the penalty imposed. The approach has to united otherwise we will never see it stop.
