In the waste industry there is one topic that is never too far from everyone’s lips – Fly Tipping. Last year, the Government estimated that £57.7 million pounds was spent by local authorities to clear up the mess. However, despite their best efforts there has been a steady increase in offences in the past five years.
Here are some things Hurleys Skip Hire want you to be aware of when disposing of waste responsibly.
Tradesmen and Fly Tipping
Did you know that if you are transporting any amount of waste from a job, be it off cuts of carpet, a few small bags of hardcore or even householder’s rubbish you didn’t produce yourself, you legally need a Waste Carriers Licence? You also need a Waste Carriers License to tip in our yard! They’re easy to get, start your application.
House holders and Fly Tipping
Don’t be shy to check the credentials of anyone hired to dispose of your waste. Making sure your workmen have the relevant licences is a failsafe way to make sure your waste is being disposed of via the correct channels. All Waste Removal companies who exclusively deal in the removal of waste should have a licence, if they don’t something isn’t right. Ordering a skip solves that problem, so if in doubt, call Hurleys Skip Hire today!
Together we can help tackle fly tipping and keep Britain tidy!
