Although UK councils offer comprehensive collection services for a range of rubbish removal and recycling needs, some waste removals exceed their allowances. Most individuals in Ilford understand their responsibilities to properly dispose of waste in ethical and safe ways. G & S Waste Management helps with this through skip hire and rubbish clearance services. However, some people choose the illegal option of fly-tipping to get rid of larger amounts of household, commercial or industrial waste.
Fly-tipping refers to illegally dumping waste in unsuitable locations. Rather than utilising skip hire services or waste removal companies, fly tippers dump rubbish in gardens, fields and streets hoping they won’t be caught.
There are various risks associated with fly-tipping. Unlike professional rubbish clearance companies, fly-tippers do not consider the appropriate disposal methods of certain materials. This means there could be any kind of harmful or dangerous materials dumped in public spaces in Ilford.
Wildlife can be harmed by poisonous substances found in household goods while other items, like plastic and wiring, cause suffocation and strangulation risks.
There is also a significant danger to children if proper rubbish removal practices are not followed. Kids often play on piles of fly-tipped waste because there are no barriers, like skip hire provides. Not only is there a risk of injury, but children can also become trapped in items like old fridges.
By ignoring waste removal regulations, fly-tippers also cause environmental damage. Hazardous substances can seep into the ground, effecting animals and plants, and damaging the wider eco-system.
As well as this, fly tipping has a social impact on neighbourhoods in Ilford. Communities quickly gather a bad reputation for being dirty and shabby when rubbish clearance practices aren’t place, while rotting food and other materials attract flies and rodents.
It is clear then why professional rubbish removal is so important. We also provide services for the removal of fly-tipped waste in Ilford, helping to return communities to clean and safe standards.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs estimates that councils spend roughly £4m a month dealing with fly-tipping. This money comes from the taxpayer and could be put to much better use if proper rubbish clearance methods were followed by everyone.

The Environment Agency has a 24-hour hotline to report fly-tipping in your area. Alternatively, you can inform the police.
