As well as looking and smelling bad and attracting vermin, fly tipping can be used as fuel to start a deliberate fire. We’ve found that if the problem is not dealt with quickly, it can lead to an increase in fly-tipping in the area, increasing the risk of fire resulting in potential loss of life and damage to property and the environment. This puts an unnecessary strain on fire service resources when we could be attending other emergency calls.
If you see fly tipping, please report it to your local authority. You can use this link to find the relevant council for your location.
