Fly Tipping Problems

Recommended Posts

I was listening to a Barnsley councillor on Radio sheffield moaning about an increase in household black bags being fly tipped full of food rubbish etc. He said he couldnt understand why there had been an explosion in dumping household waste bags.

 

If his council , like others hadnt cut the black wheelie bin collection by half , people wouldnt have to resort to dumping their rubbish . Did the councils think by cutting the collections by half, then half of the rubbish would vanish into thin air. ?

 

There seems to be plenty of this 'thin air' around- you clearly believe councils can magic money to pay for weekly bin collections out of it. Or perhaps there's a magic money tree for this?

No, they thought half of it would go into the recycling bins.

 

They havent cut the collections in half, theyve just divided it into 2 separate

collections, which most people manage perfectly well with.

Do you get through a lot of white goods if you're a council tennent? And if you can get them off your property can't you get them to a tip?

 

£60 is a bit of a con though.

No, it is not. If you're a council tenant then it's a tenner for 1-3 items.

It would be if it was. It isn't though so it isn't. Quite reasonable costs actually.

I swear to god, when I asked for an item to be collected she kept on about - If I've already had my one collection already it would cost me £60.00 per Item, she mentioned this not once, but three times during our conversation until I told her " Listen I have not had a previous collection"

I've got a double bed here I want shifting, If it's only a tenner It will be gone this week.

Just as a matter of interest how much does it cost for garages/tyre fitters to legitimately get rid of worn tyres.

Seems to be a popular item for dumping.The latest lot dumped in the car park at Loxley Common.

Council tenants are allowed one collection of up to 12 large items in any 12 month period and it's not £60 per item after that.

Is this the reason so many council houses have got mattresses+chairs +cabinets etc.in their front garden? Do they save them up until its worth ringing for a free collection every 12 months?

Yay! It seems SYP and the 'Sheffield Star' have just discovered this "new online reporting service", http://www.fixmystreet.com.

Don't get me wrong – I think that's great – but, unless I'm hallucinating, I'm sure I've been using the same service for the past decade.
