A new drive to tackle fly-tipping is underway in Surrey. The county has seen an increase in the amount of waste being illegally dumped in the past year which cost Surrey’s councils nearly £1 million to clear up.
County, borough and district councils, together with other partners, have joined forces to crack down on fly-tippers and want residents to help by reporting it. They’re also highlighting that it’s a home-owners’ responsibility to dispose of any waste from their property responsibly and legally. So if a contractor is doing work at your home it’s vital to check they are a registered waste carrier.
