Fly Tipping Problems as Litter is Dumped on Sheffield Streets, Report Rubbish Removal Sheffield

fly tipping sheffield rubbish removalAs professional providers of rubbish removal Sheffield, a recent article in the Sheffield Star caught our eye as it addressed the worsening problem of fly tipping in some areas of Sheffield. A campaign carried out by the newspaper called ‘The Star’s Your Right to Know’ campaign showed that the problem affects residents right across the city, with discarded bags, rubble and industrial waste even seen in beauty spots. According to council officers, a total of only 27 convictions for the offense of fly tipping have been secured, as it often happens during the night and is therefore difficult to prove.

The Definition of Fly Tipping

Fly-tipping is the illegal deposit of waste on land not permitted to receive it, and can be liquid or solid in nature. Fly-tipping differs from littering in that it invariably involves the removal of waste from premises where it was produced with the deliberate aim of disposing of it unlawfully, or as a result of legitimate outlets not being available.

Complaints to Sheffield Council

The problem is particularly bad on Abbeydale Road in Sheffield, a busy street lined with business and houses. In the last three years alone, 100 complaints have been made to Sheffield Council regarding the discarded litter on this road, more than any other road in the city. A particularly bad spot in this area is at the back of Broadfield Park, just off Abbeydale Road, where it has been reported that there is a pile of discarded bricks, as well as household waste, several margarine tubs and a fire extinguisher. Along the nearby riverside there are carrier bags and lots of bottles and cans.

Businesses Forced to Take Litter Home

According to the Sheffield Star, the staff at Abbeydale road firm Hadfield Electrical have been forced to take litter home to dispose of, as the bins outside their premises are constantly filled during the night. Hadfield Electrical staff member Lee Warner said “It happens every week – during the night when there is nobody here. We’ve got used to it. The binmen came on Monday and didn’t take the rubbish. We take some stuff home and put it in our own bins. Every now and then we have to go to the tip but we can only go so many times.”

Fly Tipping in Parks and Green Spaces

Fly tipping is Sheffield is more prevalent on roads close to parks and green spaces, according to figures obtained from Sheffield Council. Mike Parry, manager of the council’s environmental enforcement team urged people not to use unofficial methods of disposal, as often these so-called firms take money and then dump the waste. “Sometimes we can trace waste back to the household or business and they then run into difficulties. In good faith they have paid someone to take it away and think it will be disposed of properly, but it has been dumped,” he said.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.

Great experience with these guys. They came and cleared a load of rubble from my garden. The two lads who came were very polite and friendly, they cleared the rubble in very little time and I am very impressed with the job they've done.It was slightly more expensive than hiring a skip, but so much less hassle! Plus if I'd hired a skip I'd have had to do all the lifting and moving myself! Definitely worth the money, I will definitely use again and I would recommend to anybody.

Really impressed with the service I received today. The guys were polite, friendly and efficient and cleared everything really quickly, despite the heat. I now have a garden I can enjoy for the rest of the summer. I would highly recommend this company - far less trouble than hiring a skip and very good value for money.

Brilliant guys who came to clear up the bungalow of an elderly relative with dementia who had been a hoarder all her life. They worked quickly and were very polite. We used them 2 weeks running because of the amount of rubbish. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would use again in the future.
