23 Apr Illegal Waste Dumping How it affects You
Most waste is relatively easy to get rid of, with councils offering comprehensive collection services for rubbish and by hiring in your local skip bin hire company.
Although services can vary from council to council, everyone benefits from free collection, so why abuse what works. But what happens when the amount of rubbish you have far exceeds your amount of allocated pickups or if you have materials that can’t be collected with your kerbside collection .
Most individuals understand that it’s their responsibility to dispose of the rubbish in a moral and ethical manner, either by hiring a skip, or taking it to a recycling yard or local council waste facility. For lots of larger items or builders waste, you could hire in your local skip bin hire company to get rid of it cleanly, efficiently and quickly. Most skip bin hire companies offer cheaper pricing for recyclable products .
Unfortunately there are always those odd few who are too lazy and inconsiderate to do the right thing, instead opting for the illegal dumping or mistreating the kerb side collection system, by adding uncollectable’ s or dangerous items to others kerb side pickups.
