Fly tipping cost Telford & Wrekin £183k last year

Fly-tipping in Telford & Wrekin cost £183k to clean up last year, according to figures obtained by the Countryside Alliance.

I regularly report fly tipping as you can see if you go back through previous posts and it's almost always sofas, garden waste, clothes and general household rubbish.  It's pretty obvious that this is a consequence of the fortnightly bin collections and charging for bulk waste collections.

I believe that the bulk collection service is loss making even without taking into account the cost of increased fly tipping as a result of the charges.
