Fly Tipping

Attached is the Hertfordshire County Council “Lets S.C.R.A.P. fly tipping” leaflet.  It contains useful information and advice on how to reduce fly tipping.

Fly Tips should be reported to your local district council.

The link www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/flytipping provides various ways you can report fly tipping in your local district, including online reporting, email and telephone numbers. 

Skips

Skips are still in operation and this is a secure way of depositing waste. An invoice from the skip company fulfils the obligation for a householder’s duty of care. Please check with the skip company as some are happy to drop the skip but it could take two to three weeks to collect.

The following link will help you identify approved carriers:

Burning of Waste

With regards to burning waste, this is a NO, as what it is being burnt could be harmful to the atmosphere. However, a bit of common sense means that if you burn garden waste and wood then this is a normal bonfire.  On days where the weather is good, please consider your neighbours who may hang out washing or have open windows.

Here is the official Government Bonfire Guidelines.  Breaches should be reported to your local Council.
