Fly Tipping: How can it be stopped?

With Summer well underway and the car boot season picking up it's now more than ever people start having a clear out.

But that also brings with it the problem of fly tipping.

As Wythall is a semi-rural area, most of our fields and roads are used as dumping grounds for household waste.

With the recent dumping on Tilehouse Lane by Whitlocks End train station it's clear its become a more frequent problem.

So what can you do?

The easiest way to stop the cycle of fly tipping is to either dispose of your waste yourself correctly or phone the council to collect it.

Most fly tipping incidents occur through unrepeatable business disposing of waste for a cost, if you can't dispose of your waste yourself, ensure you use a businesses registered with the environment agency.

To contact Bromsgrove Council to remove your rubbish, click here for their bulky collection centre and here for their household recycling centres.

If you do see a case of fly tipping, report it to the council, which is linked here, and they'll come and remove the waste and investigate the incident.

Hopefully we can come together to reduce the problem.
