Why fly-tipping is a bad idea

Posted on Sunday, October 10th, 2021

Most of us understand that it’s our responsibility to dispose of our rubbish in a moral and ethical manner, either by hiring a skip bin, taking it to a recycling center or rubbish dump. For larger items, Bonza Bins can help you get rid of it cleanly, quickly and efficiently. 

Unfortunately, some people opt to dispose of their trash unethically resulting in fly-tipping.

What is fly-tipping?

‘Fly tipping’ refers to the practice of dumping waste illegally. Rather than using tips, skips or waste disposal companies. Fly tippers simply dump their rubbish in a place where they hope they won’t be spotted. This might be in a neighbour’s yard, on the street or frequently out in the rural areas.

What are the effects of fly-tipping?

Depending on the type of rubbish and waste that is being dumped, it can be contaminated with harmful substances or materials that aren’t safe for the public. Household goods may contain substances that could kill wild animals if ingested.

Dumping a load of waste affects the ground and the local ecosystem on many different levels. As well as presenting a danger to animals, the earth could absorb toxins preventing future growth of greenery or even worse, permitting poisons to enter the plants, thus reaching even more insects and creatures. Fly tipping isn’t just an eyesore; it can actually present a very real danger to human health too.

Fly tipping and illegal waste dumping harms the environment, hurts our wildlife and brings vermin and potential diseases to the affected area. With multiple different ways to get rid of waste, there should never be an excuse for fly-tipping. If you are looking to get rid of heavy waste, contact our team at Bonza Bins.
