Why do people Fly-Tip waste in East Sussex?
As with most things, it usually comes down to cost. Recycling is not always cheap, with a lot of sorting and processing taking place before it can be done effectively.
This means professional waste clearance companies such as us have to pay a significant portion of our turnover to the waste transfer stations where we dispose of your waste for recycling. This cost is of course passed onto the customer when the quote is originally given to them.
Some people fly-tip their own rubbish to avoid this cost, which is bad enough. But even worse, they may unsuspectingly hire a cheap, un-licensed, man-and-van style service for a ‘tip-run’.
There are a lot of these type of ‘cowboys’ in the waste clearance industry, which is why it’s very important to ensure you know exactly who is disposing of your waste. It’s important to check they’re licensed by the Environment Agency, because if not they cannot use a commercial waste transfer station to dispose of your waste. Even being licensed doesn’t necessarily mean the person or company you use won’t fly-tip, so always use a reputable company such as ETS Waste Management Ltd.
Fly-Tipped Rubbish Clearance in East Sussex
It’s illegal for any trader to use the free household recycling centres. They are for the use of householders to dispose of their own waste only. No trade or commercial waste is allowed, which is what your waste becomes once you pay someone to take it away.
Inevitably, these type of illegal, unlicensed rubbish clearance guys fly-tip the rubbish and contribute hugely to the fly-tipping problem in East Sussex. They’re cheap to use for a reason – they have no disposal costs! But, if the waste they dump leads back to the person who hired them then it’s that person or company that ends up with the fine, which can run into thousands of pounds!
As with most things, it’s worth paying a little more for a professional service. It’s better for the environment, helps the economy by funding legitimate tax-paying businesses – and saves you from potentially getting a large fine!
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
