Below are some images of a recent fly tipped waste removal in Sheffield and Huddersfield.
In both instances rubbish has been tipped by illegal waste carriers.
The kinds of waste tipped included:
- Green waste
- General waste
- Construction waste
Yes Waste were contacted by a facilities management company to conduct the emergency rubbish removal. We were able to remove all the fly tipped waste within 24 hours of the initial instruction. All the waste was disposed of at fully licensed commercial waste transfer stations.
See some of the fly tipping statistics below for England 2019/2020 taken from the government website
- For the 2018/19 year, local authorities in England dealt with over 1 million (1,072,000) fly-tipping incidents, an increase of 8% from the 998,000 reported in 2017/18.
- Nearly two thirds (62%) of fly-tips involved household waste. Total incidents involving household waste increased by 2% from 2017/18.
- Consistent with previous years, the most common place for fly-tipping to occur was on highways (pavements and roads), which accounted for almost half (46%) of total incidents in 2018/19. The number of highway incidents has increased by 6% from 2017/18.
- As in the last few years, the most common size category for fly-tipping incidents in 2018/19 was equivalent to a ‘small van load’ (33% of total incidents), followed by the equivalent of a ‘car boot or less’ (30%).
- In 2018/19, 36,000 or 3% of total incidents were of ‘tipper lorry load’ size or larger, which is similar to 2017/18. For these large fly-tipping incidents, the cost of clearance to local authorities in England in 2018/19 was £12.9 million, compared with £12.2 million in 2017/18.
- Local authorities carried out 499,000 enforcement actions in 2018/19, an increase of 5,000 actions (1%) from 2017/18.
- The number of fixed penalty notices issued has continued to increase, up 11% to 76,000 in 2018/19. This is the second most common action (after investigations), and accounted for 15% of all actions in 2018/19.
- For 2018/19, 12,000 (16%) of fixed penalty notices were issued specifically for small scale fly-tipping, 37,000 (48%) in relation to littering and 26,000 (35%) in relation to other offences.
- The number of fines issued increased by 6% to 2,052 in 2018/19, with the value of total fines increasing to £1,090,000 (an increase of 29% on the £843,000 total value of fines in 2017/18).
Yes Waste core coverage areas include Leeds, Manchester, Huddersfield and Wakefield and their surrounding areas.
For larger fly tipping issues we can clear rubbish nationally.
