Fly Tipping Is Illegal and Damaging Our Ecosystems

The next time you are tempted to dump your rubbish, please think again. Not only is fly tipping illegal, it is systematically destroying ecosystems all over our country. While councilmen have made it difficult to dispose of rubbish with exorbitant fees, we must follow appropriate disposal methods. The consequences of fly tipping are beginning to create blight and disrupt our sensitive ecosystem.

Fly Tipping Is Illegal and Damaging Our Ecosystems

Proper Rubbish Disposal

Dispose of rubbish properly is costly, but the damage to our environment by scoundrels who think nothing of fly tipping, is immeasurable. Some continue to fly tip, and justify their actions by saying that scrap merchants will retrieve the items. This mindset begs the question: “Why not call a scrap merchant directly?” That would be the proper way of disposing of old washers and the like. That or taking it directly to the scrap buyer. Even though it may be out of the way, it is the right thing to do, and you can be paid for your efforts.

Following the schedule is often difficult, but placing your rubbish out on time can be accomplished. If you aren’t sure of your schedule, you can find it easy at the gov.uk website under recycling and rubbish.

Protect the Environment

Sadly, many are too lazy, too poor is simply don’t care to dispose of their large waste responsibly. This practice is causing widespread damage to the environment, damaging delicate ecosystems and destroying the beauty of our countryside, causing road hazards and injury. But we don’t have to sit idly by as the UK becomes one enormous tip. There are actions you can take to help stop the practice of fly tipping and to keep your little patch of earth pristine.

Follow proper disposal methods yourself and by encouraging your family, friends and neighbors to do the same. Ask your council to consider lowering the costs associated with proper disposal. Your argument should include a cost analysis of what the public pays to clean up local tips. Disposing of rubbish properly costs much less than cleaning tips.
