As experts in rubbish removal Sheffield, the staff at Clearance and Clean Up are always really disappointed by local reports of fly-tipping. It’s such a shame that this sort of crime still goes on when there are plenty of options to dispose of rubbish and other unwanted items that are safe and affordable, as opposed to illegal.
A recent article published in the Sheffield Star reports how the local council are cracking down on those caught fly tipping in the Sheffield area. According to the newspaper, fines of more than £700 are being handed out by Sheffield Council for those people who are caught dumping rubbish and unwanted waste items.
The article comes after a substantial amount of rubbish, which included sheets of the dangerous substance asbestos, was found dumped in a car park in Loxley Common, Loxley, a member of the public came forward and reported the act of fly-tipping to the council.
Last year, there were 19 prosecutions for fly-tipping in Sheffield. As a result of the recent incident in Loxley, Sheffield Council is reminding the general public of the council’s zero-tolerance approach to catch those responsible and hopefully prosecute them.
Coun Jack Scott, cabinet member for environment, recycling and Streetscene, said: “There is no excuse for this disgusting and totally unnecessary behaviour. People who dump waste in this way should have more pride in their area and not commit this ignorant crime. We take a zero-tolerance approach and use every tool at our disposal to catch these criminals.”
Coun Scott has also urged residents to report any problems to the council so that they can be resolved as quickly as possible. “Last year we had 19 prosecutions for fly-tipping, with the highest fine over £700,” he said.
