BookaBin Warn Against Fly Tipping

Announcement posted by Bartercard AU 30 Jun 2021

Illegal dumping, also called fly dumping or fly tipping, is the dumping of waste illegally instead of using an authorised method such as street collection or using an authorised rubbish dump.

It is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land, including waste dumped or tipped on a site with no license to accept waste. 


If you are a council tax payer, you will benefit from free rubbish collection and recycling services. However, whatever the exact level of service that your own local authority provides – and it does differ from one to the other – there may be times when your rubbish exceeds your allowance, or you may have especially bulky items that you are unable to dispose of in the usual way. 


So, what to do instead? The sensible thing is to get in touch with a waste management company, recycling or refuse centre or skip hire specialist such as BookaBin so that you can get rid of that awkward rubbish in the most efficient, ethical and safe manner. Sadly, however, there are a few who instead choose to dump their waste illegally – a practice known as fly tipping. 


If you are stupid enough to consider illegally dumping your rubbish, be prepared for a serious fine, or even a stretch in jail, depending on how much and how often you indulge in this heinous activity. Also, all of those costs of clearing up your illegally dumped waste have to be paid for somehow, and inevitably, it’ll be you footing the bill through your council tax. So, why not just go the legitimate route in the first place? 


When you are next tempted to fly tip, you should therefore make sure that you explore the many alternative options for more safely and morally disposing of your waste, such as hiring a skip from BookaBin.
