Fly Tipping Manchester - Worst Streets and How To Report

Manchester has one of the worst fly tipping problems in the UK, according to the Manchester Evening News. With over 140 incidents happening every day in Greater Manchester alone.

In this article, we look at the worst streets in Manchester and what to do if you need to report fly tipping in your area.

Where are the worst places for fly tipping in Manchester?

A study from the Manchester evening news showed the 5 most reported Manchester streets in 2019.

Who are responsible for fly tipping in Manchester?

There are a number of reasons why people fly tip in Manchester. Some of it is down to overcrowding in less affluent areas. Which can lead to littering and fly tipping in gardens and alleyways. But much of the waste comes from people who don’t even know they’re committing a crime.

It is often the case that people will look for the cheapest waste disposal possible. But the truth is that waste disposal isn’t cheap. Rogue waste carriers offer customers unrealistic prices where the only way for them to make a profit is by fly tipping the waste.

This puts the customer in an unknowingly vulnerable position. Because even though the customer has paid for the waste to be removed, they are still liable. Which means, if the waste is fly tipped then traced back to them, they risk prosecution.

This is why it is vital to use legitimate waste carriers and ensure they provide a waste transfer note. This paperwork proves that the waste has been disposed of legally and ethically.
