According to Sheffield Council, the former open-air ski center has become a prime location for a range of anti social behaviour including vandalism and fly-tipping. The now derelict site which is located just off Vale Road is becoming overrun with rubbish and waste. The Sheffield Star reported that people now describe it as an “eye-sore.”
The Ski Village closed in 2012 after a series of fires that destroyed the site. Since the closure, it has been hit by several arson attacks and also become a dumping ground for scrap vehicles, tyres, rubbish, and demolition material.
The Dangers of Uncontrolled Waste Disposal
Dumping waste such as this on unlicensed land and derelict sites is described as fly tipping. Not only is this practice illegal, it is also damaging to the environment and not very nice to look at. In theory, fly tipping can happen anywhere. The derelict site of Sheffield’s Ski Village has become a place to dump waste due its disuse and the lack of security on the site.
Understandably, people that live near areas that are used for fly tipping are very unhappy about it, as it is not only unsightly but can be dangerous too. Uncontrolled waste disposal can actually be hazardous to the general public and their pets as it can include syringes and chemical waste, as well electrical items and other waste. This type of waste can also damage the environment, especially wildlife and waterways.
