UK Government committed to reduce fly-tipping

Fly-tipping is a significant issue across the UK, particularly in the East of England. The latest government statistics from DEFRA show there were more than a million incidents of fly-tipping on public land in 2022/23 in England, including more than 78,000 in the East of England. 

Fly-tipping blights our beautiful countryside and urban areas and poses serious risks to wildlife and public health. To tackle this persistent problem, Recycling Minister Robbie Moore recently announced that 26 councils, including Cambridgeshire County Council, will receive nearly £1 million to step up their efforts against fly-tipping. 

As local residents ourselves, we know that fly-tipping is a major concern for many communities in our region. However, often homeowners unknowingly hire unlicensed contractors who promise to dispose of waste cheaply but end up fly-tipping. This perpetuates the problem and exposes homeowners to potential fines if their waste is traced back to them. By choosing Ellgia, you can be confident that your waste will be handled by a fully licensed and reputable company, ensuring it is disposed of correctly and ethically.
