Flytippers Sought After Rubbish Dumped

The rubbish dumped at Green Lane The rubbish dumped at Green Lane

BARNSLEY'S safer neighbourhood team has appealed for information tracking down a fly tipper who has dumped rubbish in Worsbrough.

The pile of rubbish was tipped at Green Lane and included an old sofa and old household items.

Sergeant Jenkins from Wombwell SNT made the appeal for information earlier today.

I don't condone fly tipping at all, but with all the restriction on using council run dump it sites, the charges for having rubbish removed, and the fortnightly rubbish collections it is hardly surprising that people are dumping there rubbish anywhere they see fit. We either burn our rubbish or take it to the dump it, luckily we have a van (private not commercial) for larger items, which is registered with the council for use 12 times a year using the voucher book. We use to help out friends and family when they needed things taking to the dump it, but we are no longer able to as we need the tickets to dispose of our own rubbish. I agree we need to protect the environment and stop fly tipping, to do this the council needs to reduce the restriction they have and reduce the cost of having rubbish collected. Many people don't fly tip but allow the rubbish to build up in their gardens because they have no means of disposing of it, then they end up with rodent infestations, which is another cost either to the individual or the council.

i agree with above. councils..(and\or other) sit down and come with.."what a good idea ive had" plans. and dont realise they are the victims of their own ideas. people need to dispose of rubbish, and facilities should be in place for this. without havint to pay. how do they expect small building firms to manage when they have a bill or a ticket to have to dispose of it. the list is endless.

We have a large van which is supposedly too long to be able to use for the dumpit site even though we are retired and the van has only ever been used for personal use. I got rid of my car and only use the bus or walk. There is no way for us to be able to take rubbish to the recycling centre and therefore the council are not helping their council tax payers so I am not surprised someone has fly-tipped.

this happens every day in barnsley area there is 2 settees on the peninne trail at wombwell and other rubbish striped electric cables black bags of rubbish the ppl who do this or littering should be made to do clean up hours or pay a hefty fine £2.000 THAT WOULD STOP THEM

excuse the pun, but there is an awful lot of rubbish being said here.

The council only charges £10 to remove 4 large items, which would have included the 3-piece suite and tv dumped here
The maxiumum fine for fly tipping is £50,000 for household waste or unlimited for commercial waste....and it doesnt stop them
The only restriction regarding size of van taken to a household waste recycling centre is that it gets under the barrier, commercial vans are not allowed as it is for household waste only, vans for personal waste can be booked in but there is a restriction re: the number of times as unscrupulous and unlicenced waste carriers charge people to dispose of their waste and then attempt to take it to a HWRC
There is NO EXCUSE for fly tipping and for gods sake stop blaming the council for everything that you do wrong

I have been told by the council that we cannot have a permit as the van is classed as long wheel base. It does fit under the barrier. I had to give full details of the van, it is not commercial, not sign written and we do not fly tip. We were told we cannot have a permit. The only choices we have are hire a skip or hire a car.

Totally agree with the above comment from fitz, its a lazy and profitable excuse that people fly tip. If they want to fly tip then sod of to another country where it is accepted. I suggest the police need to do more, they say they are under manned but if this government had an ounce of sense they would be giving the police more money for recruitment.

me and my wife paid for some rubbish removing and two weeks after there was a knock on the door from the police and the council all of our rubbish had been dumped exactly like the photo above so trust no one and grin and bear the tip run its the only way you can be sure its got rid of correctly

If you pay someone else to remove your rubbish, please do ensure you ask to see their documents. They should be a certified waste carrier. If not, then they are likely to dump it, and you will be held responsible for it! Beware!!

I agree to with Fitz, p and A parent. There is no resaon to fly tip. It's easy to get rid of rubbish. You could always ask a neighbour for the small stuff. Charity shops would love furniture. Some pick up for free.
KL why not get a smaller van if you don't use it that much! A builder I know, he took is advert off his van, so he can get into the dump site, without a permit.
