Everyone needs to do their bit to crack down on fly-tipping. It’s important that Hertsmere Borough Council, local businesses and the local community should unite to prevent fly-tipping from increasing in the area.
As reported by the Welwyn Hatfield Times, incidences of fly-tipping within the Hertsmere Borough Council area have increased by 22% in 2016/17 compared to the previous year and have cost the council almost £36,000 to clean up.
CS Recycling Director, John Curtis, said: “We all have a responsibility to ensure Potters Bar and the surrounding areas are free from the scourge of fly-tipping on our local environment.
“Everyone has to do their bit. That could be keeping an eye out for fly-tippers and reporting any suspicious activity to the council or police, letting the council know if you spot it has happened, or importantly ensuring that anyone who collects your waste has a waste carrier’s licence.
