What are the causes of fly tipping?
The causes of fly tipping are many and varied, as are the motivations of the perpetrators, although financial gain or financial saving is clearly a principal reason in the majority of cases.
However, a lack of waste disposal facilities or access to them, laziness and an attitude that someone else will clear up the waste, all have a part to play.
Fly tipping is a problem because:
It costs an estimated £86m-£186 million every year to investigate and clear up. This cost falls on taxpayers and private landowners.
Fly tipping poses a threat to humans and wildlife, damages our environment, and spoils our enjoyment of our towns and countryside.
Fly tipping undermines legitimate waste businesses like ours where illegal operators undercut those operating within the law. At the same time, our reputation as legal operators is undermined by rogue traders. As with other things that affect local environment quality, areas subject to repeated fly tipping may suffer declining property prices and local businesses may suffer as people stay away.
