New powers to combat fly tipping
Nottinghamshire Councils have now acquired new powers to seize and destroy vehicles used by fly tippers. Vehicles are removed by councils and taken directly to dismantlers for destruction.
Hidden cameras are now in use in areas that are regularly used for fly tipping.
Councils are also supporting communities who are operating their own litter picking schemes.
We don't see this problem going away anytime soon though. Every week customers ask us to dispose of items for them during a house removal in Nottingham. Once we quote a cost and explain why they are shocked. Seems the best way forward is to buy well made products and make them last, moving away from the throw away culture of recent years.
