In the past nine months flytipping reports have increased by 16%.
Between last April and December there were over 4,300 flytipping incidents—that’s a monthly average of nearly 500 new reports.
While some people struggled to store bulky waste during the first lockdown and others are now struggling to get a slot using the council’s new booking system, there is simply no excuse for dumping your rubbish for somebody else to sort out.
Flytipping is a symptom of our throwaway culture and a disregard for personal responsibility and accountability for our own actions.
Truthfully: if we all stopped flytipping, we wouldn’t have a problem.
Milton Keynes is a beautiful place to live so we all need to stop putting our waste where it doesn’t belong.
Remember: your rubbish, your responsibility.
