Over the years, our society has become reliant upon disposable, throwaway products and packaging. Unfortunately, this has caused a significant spike in fly-tipping incidents in Surrey and the wider UK. Surrey homeowners are increasingly becoming willing to invest in responsible waste removal solutions, as a growing portion of the public becomes green-minded. But there is still an unacceptable number of persons choosing to fly-tip. Across the UK as a whole, the number is actually growing. We hope the below statistics will reinforce why it’s more important than ever to choose proper, legal avenues for waste removal in Surrey.
Local authorities dealt with over 900,000 incidents of fly-tipping in 2014-15. This was up 5.6% on 2013-14.
Councils including Surrey launched 515 enforcement actions over the same period, accumulatively costing them around £17.6m.
Nearly a third of all fly-tipping resulted in a “van-load” of rubbish being illegally disposed of. A “car-boot’s” worth of rubbish accounted for 30% of all instances.
Fly-tipping cost councils £50m over the course of 2014-15, up 11% on the previous year.
Over 48% of fly-tipping took place on highways.
Fly-tipping seems like a good option when other waste removal options around Surrey appear expensive or inconvenient. But why risk being taken to court over fly-tipping, when you can invest in a highly affordable, fast and effect means of rubbish removal? That’s what our waste removal experts offer.
Despite the scary fly-tipping statistics, generally people’s attitude toward responsible waste removal and rubbish removal is getting better across Surrey and the wider UK. The UK household recycling rate reached 44.9% in 2014 and is on an upward trend. The amount of UK biodegradable waste sent to landfill is falling, another positive trend, and the amount of UK packaging waste being recycled is on the up.
So if you’re in Surrey and need a responsible waste removal and rubbish removal company to get rid of a single appliance, or a much larger quantity of waste, give us a call.
