I WORKED for Blackpool Council for more than 20 years and was an inspector with the cleansing department on my retirement.
One of our jobs was to check on fly-tipping which took a lot of time in all areas.
At that time you could get three items removed for £2.
I recently phoned to ask how much is charged to remove a wardrobe. I was told three items would be £18. I said I only had one item, but it would still be £18.
Instead, I took the wardrobe apart and took it to the tip myself.
I bet a lot of people won’t do that, so fly-tipping will go on, surely on a bigger scale.
