Fly tipping during Covid-19 lockdown

Updated: May 8, 2020


We're very disappointed this morning having discovered someone has dumped waste in a layby on the estate.


This illegal fly tipping means someone from our team has to go out to clean it up. Besides the cost and time involved, this extra work comes at a time we don't want to be sending our team out on necessary journeys.


Zero Waste Scotland have published useful advice on how to handle household waste during the 'lockdown' - you can read more about it here on their website

Update: We've now had further illegal dumping - this time household rubbish (which we cannot understand as bins are still being collected as normal) and a quantity of asbestos sheeting.
