The way environmental taxes are collected at the moment actually causes fly tipping.
Jobbing builders, especially in low income areas, where price competition is fierce, are likely to simply find a secluded spot and fly-tip their building waste. The cause of this is the land fill tax that drives the price of a skip sky high.
The same applies to charges for tyre disposal. In Hampshire, where recycling centres have stopped accepting tyres, tyres are now being dumped at the side of the road.
All of this generates extra costs compared to simply accepting these items for free at recycling centres and land fill sites.
Recycling centres now rarely accept waste if you turn up in a van.
Trying to catch fly tippers (e.g. using CCTV cameras) simply makes the problem worse by forcing them to new, pristine beauty spots.
