Fly-tipping -You Are Responsible for Checking Traders Are Registered!

Rate this item
(0 votes)

The following press notice has been sent by the Council and we are pleased to reproduce it here:

If you're getting someone in to work on your house or garden, before you agree anything, check they are a registered waste carrier. That way you'll have peace of mind that when your trader takes your waste away it won't be dumped, causing damage to Spelthorne's beautiful green spaces and create unnecessary work for the Council.

It's easy to do and could save you a £400 fine, because if your waste is found dumped it's you who'll be fined, not the rogue trader. You should always get a receipt for the disposal of your waste. Find out via the Environment Agency's website to if your trader is registered: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/index.

Fly-tipping is anti-social, and punishment can result in a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months in prison. In Surrey 100% of fly-tippers who go to court are convicted, so help us to stamp out this unacceptable behaviour by running a quick check online before you employ anyone.

Councillor Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Compliance, Waste and Risk, said: "Our green spaces are particularly precious and do not deserve to be damaged by fly-tipped waste. It takes two minutes to check online to check whether your trader is registered. Let's all work together and do our bit to get rid of this unseemly practice."

You can find out all you need to know about fly-tipping in Surrey, including how to report it where you live, on the Surrey Environment Partnership website: https://www.surreyep.org.uk/fly-tipping/
