Fly tipping has been in the news recently, especially in Surrey. Some boroughs spent over £1 million last year cleaning up rubbish left on the streets or by the roadside. That’s 1,400 tonnes from Reigate & Banstead alone! The crime of fly-tipping is punishable, if caught, by up to £2,500 although the actual fines are typically lower. There is a drive to report offenders and bring them to justice. If you see someone fly-tipping the advice is to call 999, or if you see evidence of newly dumped waste, call the local council to report it. If you’ve been a victim of fly tipping call us now for a quote to remove it.
It is the responsibility of all of us to keep our borough clean and tidy. Simple measures such as home recycling can help. But we should try to avoid dropping cigarette butts, apple cores, and paper wrappers too
