Fly Tipping problems around Sheffield

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)?  

Saw two dumps of computer equipment in the woods near Hagg Lane this week :(

 

Have reported it to council, who say Amey will take a look. Given there were boxes with names on and hard disks left in the computers I hope they can catch the owners!

any luck? I reported 2 cases. Within 24 hours both were closed by Amey as "Your reported fault has been assessed and no further action is required at this time."

I use Love Clean Streets app to report fly tipping and it usually gets cleared quickly.

Me too.

 

cleared all sorts of rubbish of my allotment thrown by selfish idiots.

 

really annoys me cos it’s so unnecessary - drive ten minutes up road to the tip inconsiderate sods.

I reported some rubbish outside a house on a street in S11. It was gone in 3 days.

I don't know if they spoke to the resident where the building  rubbish had, obviously, come from.

Somebody had a garage clear out of plastic kids toys and car tyres and thought they would dump them in the car park off Long Lane as you enter Wadsley Common.

Cretins!

Now all cleared up.

Thanks to those who spend their time clearing up after the lowlifes.

Fly tipping ,sheffield council as already been said have only themselves to blame for the explosion of fly tipping ,yes its wrong and unsightly ,

but if the council thought it thru properly and work with the people of Sheffield, not against us  ,open the dump sites seven days a week with proper working hours so one and all can access the sites from say 0830 in the morning not 1000 and stay open until 1900 not 0430 then perhaps the fly tipping would not be as bad

Wrong. The only people responsible for fly tipping are the selfish people who fly tip.

 

If the recycling centres were to be open more often and not charge businesses, the extra costs would fall on to the council tax payers. Are you willing to pay extra in council tax?

We do.

 

What makes you think that opening tips longer will change the mindset of somebody prepared to fly tip their rubbish? I just don't get the idea that they do it because the tip is shut.
