Fly Tipping problems around Sheffield

Recommended Posts

For the past few weeks the car park has been filled with rubbish, more appearing daily. It’s now hard to park if you arrive after 8.30. What is going on ?????

 

I reported this to Total Car Parks last week and they replied saying that they are aware of the fly tipping and will be arranging for it to be cleared. They've also said that they will close the gates after 6 and keep it closed on weekends.

 

Given that the car parks is advertised as 24hrs, I asked if there will be a reduction in prices being as though it won't be 24hrs anymore....unsurprisingly, they said that prices will remain the same. :roll:

 

If the car park isn't cleared soon though, it will become full. More rubbish appears every morning.

Thanks for your info! Glad to hear they are aware but little seems to be done as there is more each day. The whole area round here is polluted with rubbish it’s vile. Seems to be old household waste. Perfect for rats ?

I was disgusted this morning to see a load of rubbish fly tipped, near the boundary to the Peak District. I can’t even begin to comprehend how anyone thinks it’s ok to dump rubbish in a beautiful place like this. I would like to see it dumped inside their house, maybe that is the only way they could start to understand how ignorant this is. But, it does make me wonder if it should be easier for rubbish to properly disposed of (ideally recycled)?

People use white van man to clear their stuff at a cheap rate without checking they have a waste carrier license.

If it's household waste, perfectly straightforward to take it to the tip.

 

If it's business waste, perfectly straightforward to get a professional contractor to dispose of it correctly.

It's never been easier for rubbish to disposed of properly. As Bargepole says, if it's domestic waste and you can get to a recycling centre it's free. If you haven't transport or it's business waste then pay a duly accredited contractor to dispose of it.
 

Where's the difficulty?

Three things.

 

1) Coz it's Sheffield and we want it cheap. And by cheap, cash in hand to a man with a van. No questions asked.

 

2) BUT I did read an article where organised crime had got into waste disposal, and look legit.

 

3) Tips are starting to get a bit fussy on what they take, worse in some parts of the country than others.

Saw the Look North report last week.  Some cheeky <removed> are now legally renting out large warehouses, paying rent for a few months, filling the places with rubbish then scarpering. 

 

Legit companies will be registered to take away rubbish & dispose of it correctly.  They can be checked out on the appropriate register.

Personally I haven’t found it too difficult getting rid of stuff via the council facilities which is why it I find it so disgusting that someone can go to the trouble of driving up a country lane and spoil the environment dumping a load of rubbish that could have been driven to the tip. But the rubbish still gets fly ripped for the reasons stated by tinfoilhat.

Parked up at the car park on Rails Rd, Rivelin yesterday, was amazed at the amount of stuff that had been fly tipped down the bank, old sofas and stuff, yet there are 2 local tips in a short distance...:rant:
