26 November 2019FLY TIPPING ADVICE
FLY TIPPING is a serious environmental crime and Northumberland County Council will use all powers available to it, including prosecution to ensure offenders are held responsible for their crimes.
Unfortunately the rise of the illegal waste carriers, often advertising through social media, appears to be on the rise and the Parish Council wishes to remind residents that the law requires them, when disposing of their waste, to use a registered waste carrier.
Residents are advised that if they are to use an independent waste carrier they must always ask to see the operator’s waste carrier licence which is issued by the Environment Agency, and the relevant waste transfer notes. This is really important because if residents make the mistake of employing an unscrupulous operator and their waste is dumped illegally - they are committing an offence and could face a large fine.
Householders should be particularly wary of businesses that only operate through social media and do not seem to have a landline phone number or business address. They should also be wary of anyone coming to their door offering to take away rubbish on the cheap.
