Householder in Court After Unlicensed Carrier Dumps His Waste at Roadside

Published on Mon 5th November 2018 Community News

Aylesbury Vale District Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure Paul Irwin, speaking on behalf of the Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire, said: "The reason we've recently launched the S.C.R.A.P. Fly Tipping campaign in Buckinghamshire is to to get householders such as this to avoid rogue operators when they need to dispose of waste. "Illegal carriers are a major source of fly tipping, and we'd like to remind people that if they fail to ensure that the person taking their waste away is licensed to do so, they are breaking the law. If their waste is then fly-tipped, they could end up with a criminal record." It only takes moments to check a waste carrier's credentials on the government website - just go online to: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers Since November 2003, the Waste Partnership has secured over 660 fly tipping convictions and a resulting significant saving to the Buckinghamshire taxpayer, principally through costs imposed by the court to cover removal and disposal costs. In Buckinghamshire fly tippers are 16 times more likely to be successfully prosecuted than in England as a whole. Illegal dumping can be reported at www.fixmystreet.buckscc.gov.uk
