Flytipping is on the rise as cash-strapped councils increase costs of residential bulky waste services and cowboy operators seek to avoid the rising costs of legal waste disposal.
AnyJunk founder, Jason Mohr, appears on Sky News to underline the costs of disposing of waste legitimately. If a contractor offers to clear your back yard for £40, then the likelihood is that your junk will be fly tipped. It costs around £100 a tonne to dispose of rubbish at a licensed treatment facility and that’s before labour and vehicle expenses. Paying people to remove waste cheaply is one step removed from fly tipping it yourself.← Charging residents to use their local tip – good or bad? AnyJunk on the Apprentice →
