How Fly Tipping Affects the Environment

When it comes to waste disposal, it is important to ensure that the environment isn’t damaged in the process. After all, there are many repercussions that can come about from a lack of care and attention. In fact, some people even take part in a heavily frowned upon act known as fly-tipping. Here at PWM Skip Hire, we’ve decided to raise awareness about the damage that can be done to the environment as a result. Read on to find out more…

What is it?

By definition, fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste and debris on land that does not belong to the offender. It can occur on a small scale when residents in a neighbourhood start to dispose of household objects illegally or it can be carried out on a large-scale format which involves the dumping of waste as a part of organised crime.


One of the main issues that many people have with fly tipping is how it can affect the aesthetics of a neighbourhood and the homes that surround it. After all, nobody wants to live next to a pile of waste! In fact, chronic fly tipping can actually affect the value of many homes as people are less willing to pay big money for a property that is located next to a piece of land that is being used in such a way.


When waste is disposed in a careless manner, it can wreak havoc on the environment in a variety of different ways. For example, waste that is thrown into a water supply can release a variety of toxic elements, making the water hazardous. As a result, this can damage the habitat of many wildlife animals and prevent them from surviving and thriving.

Here at PWM Skip Hire, we like to prioritise eco-friendly waste removal as much as possible and that is why we try to recycle as much of the debris in our skips as we can. In fact, we believe that a skip is a convenient and affordable method of disposing of waste and will most certainly help property owners avoid hefty fines of up to £5,000 for fly tipping.
