It's up do all of us to do what we can to prevent fly tipping. For people looking for someone to clear and dispose of their waste, it's essential to make sure you are using a reputable company in order to avoid a fine of up to £400.
“Unless you are using someone who has a waste carrier licence number and who provides you with enough details of where they are disposing of the waste, you cannot guarantee where your rubbish will end up,” said KCC’s Cabinet Member for Environment Susan Carey.
“If it gets dumped and traced back to you, the waste is still your responsibility and you can be prosecuted by your local district council unless you can show you have checked they are legitimate."
To help you avoid a fine, always make sure you follow the below guidance;
Registration documents should be available on request and should be inspected before services are rendered or money paid.
You can check environmental permits and waste carriers’ licences online by searching the EA public registers or call 03708 506506.
Get a written receipt/transfer note complete with contact details, a description of waste removed and details of where the waste is being taken to.
Note down the vehicle type, colour and registration number of the vehicle that’s taking your waste away.
Report suspected waste crime to the EA incident hotline 0800 807060 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
At Easy Clear Out we would like the blight of these criminals to stop destroying our beautiful countryside and would encourage residents to report fly tipping wherever they see it, it can be reported directly through the government's website https://www.gov.uk/report-flytipping
