Gloucestershire council encourage fly tipping

by on Dec.29, 2008, under General

On my recent trips through the lanes that surround the city of Gloucester, I have noticed a serious increase in Fly Tipping, I do not understand the mentallity of the retards who will drive into the country side, to dump their stuff when Gloucester has a proper and decent household recycling center

Then I discover that the city council has made it very difficult for anyone who does not want to make a mess with leaking bin bags etc, or wood chippings so use a small trailer or borrow their mates van instead

Any Van or trailer now requires 24 hours notice and an appointment

I wonder what retard thought tha was a good idea….

    It’s amazing isn’t it. I was once interrogated at a Walsall tip as they thought I was dumping trade waste. It was me and the wife, with a trailerload of bricks from the garden- they were part of an old path- towed by a Golf. Yep. Trade waste for sure.

    We get fly tipping a lot in the lanes I use to get to the motorway too. I wonder why?

    My own view is that it should be very very easy to dispose of waste legally and properly (so encourage trailers, increase opening hours etc), and the fines for flytipping should be severe and rigorously applied.
