Fly tipping is on the increase – up 20% in England in the past year, I read. And Leeds and the rest of Yorkshire has its fair share of offenders – costing the rest of us millions of pounds in clean-up charges.
The problem stems from unlicensed cowboy drivers who collect waste and undercut legitimate firms by dumping the rubbish wherever they can. They don’t pay disposal fees but trouser the difference that they’ve saved in blighting the countryside. And who picks up the final bill? You the taxpayer. So don’t be part of the problem, help us be the solution – call Yorkshire’s top grime-busters – call The Waste Team.
