Bridlington Council is requesting that smaller businesses are able to dispose of their waste for free.
In a statement a local councilor said “It’s costing the council more to go round and pick all this rubbish than what it would be to let them go free.” It’s estimated that around £100,000 in this council alone is spent on cleaning up tippers waste per year meaning tax payers money is going directly toward keeping our streets clean.
Fly-tipping (also known as ‘fly dumping’, and sometimes shortened to ‘tipping’) is a British term for dumping waste illegally instead of at an authorised rubbish dump. It is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land, i.e. waste dumped or tipped on to a site which has no official skip licence to accept waste.
