Further fly-tipping occurrences around Halifax

Posted on

Once more we regret that we must bring incidents of fly tipping to your attention.  These were provided by our community wardens and members of the public, taken during routine walkabouts.

Our aim is not to name and shame but to pass the message that fly tipping is unacceptable.

We understand that bulky household collection is at a strain and that HWRCs are busy and not easily accessible.

We would like to impress that fly tipping is not the answer.

We ask that you hold on to your garbage until you can dispose of them responsibly.

Not doing so is irresponsible and illegal.

The council is doing everything it can to provide you with options. Household Waste Recycling Centres are open, even with limitations. Bulky items kerbside collections have now restarted, with safety restrictions.

You choose in what kind of place you want to live in.

 

What you can do:

If you see any fly tipping in the first instance report it to CMBC Community First. Please keep your eyes open, if you see anything please take a photo of it and then send details to Calderdale Council via Community First.

Past recorded incidents: December 2020January 2021

Let’s put a stop to fly-tipping

Posted on Updated on

The monthly round of fly tipping in Calderdale is a post we can’t wait to stop posting!

For the second month in a row, here are some images of fly tipping in Calderdale. These were provided by our community wardens, taken during their routine walkabouts.

Our aim is not to name and shame but to pass the message that fly tipping is unacceptable.

Fly tipping is definitely not a council failing in waste collection. It falls down to irresponsible persons dumping their waste where they want, with disregard to the rest of the community.

It is ugly, unhygienic, dangerous and selfish. It is also a punishable criminal offence.

What you can do:

If you see any fly tipping in the first instance report it to CMBC Community First. Please keep your eyes open, if you see anything please take a photo of it and then send details to Calderdale Council via Community First.

Appalling incidents of fly tipping in Calderdale

Posted on

Our Community Wardens have come across masses of garbage across Calderdale. Waste dumped on the roadside, hurled over walls into natural spaces, home appliances left on the road. This is Not Acceptable, it is unhygienic and furthermore it can be dangerous.

We feel very strongly about the issue of fly tipping. It is a criminal offence that carries penalties. We would however rather get the community on board with reporting such issues and advising individuals of how to dispose of their garbage responsibly.

What you can do:

If you see any fly tipping in the first instance report it to CMBC Community First. Please keep your eyes open, if you see anything please take a photo of it and then send details to Calderdale Council via Community First.
