Upton recycling centre site to close after problems with fly-tipping

Fly tipping at Upton

Councillor Paul Johns

First published in News by

UPTON residents are to lose their mini-recycling centre as a result of persistent fly tipping.

The Dorset Waste Partnership will be removing the recycling banks from the Upton Oil site on Blandford Road North.

Its closure follows calls from local residents and councillors to deal with the ongoing problem.

The site has been targeted by people illegally dumping large amounts of rubbish next to the recycling banks, including sofas, mattresses and general household waste.

DWP has had to clear the site on a regular basis at taxpayers’ expense.

Cllr Paul Johns of Purbeck District Council and a member of the DWP Joint Committee said: “The closure of the Upton site will help to stop the unlawful dumping of household waste at this location, which will also help to reduce costs.

“However, if illegal fly tipping continues, further steps will be taken to prosecute the offenders.

“We ask residents to help us by reporting fly tipping at dorsetforyou.com/fly-tipping or by calling 01305 221040.”

Fly tipping is a crime that carries a fine of up to £50,000 or a 12-month prison sentence.

The DWP has been reducing its small recycling centres across Dorset due to lower use since the introduction of its improved recycling collection service.

Some key sites are being kept, including four in Purbeck at Beret Regis car park, North Beach car park Swanage, and two in Wareham at Streche Road and Westport House.

The partnership is made of all seven Dorset councils – excluding the Poole and Bournemouth unitaries – and its ‘recycle for Dorset’ collection replaced 12 different schemes across the county.

By working together the councils aim to cut costs by £2million a year, reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill and increase Dorset’s recycling rate from 50 per cent to more than 68 per cent by 2019.

Can't understand why they haven't used motion activated CCTV to catch them red handed. Just the same as they use covertly to catch fly tippers in rural areas. They will have to do that anyway when the fly tippers move to another location. The horse has now bolted....

We could do with said CCTV on the River Mude. Why people are so bone idle that they dump mattresses in it when the council tip is just a couple of hundred yards away I don't know.

Can't see that clearing up is cheaper than allowing a sensible domestic dumping system, it would impact on quality of life and the environment by taking away all the awful bins that are probably shipped from China and glog up the,pavements .May even creat a few jobs

Having a free council tip is all very well, but what about those who do not own a car and, therefore, cannot get there?
Why not place a skip at these re-cycling centres where one can dump unwanted rubbish? That would be a service, provided by the council, for taxpayers: this sort of service should be the function of the council! Collecting these skips would probably cost less than clearing-up the alleged fly-tipping.

You are absolute right. We holiday in France on a very regular basis, and the matter of refuse and recycling is strictly adhered to by all, and collected on a regular basis. If you have large objects, a telephone call will have some one there to pick it up at no charge. If you can take it yourself, no problem, drive in, dump it and they sort it.

France is a very clean country.

As for the Upton mini waste site, the majority dip out for the minority once again, because Poole Council cannot sort it out, and take the easy option. Typcial.

But when we see councils persistantly closing the refuse centres and dumps etc. and then charging people for disposing of rubbish on top of that, what does one expect?? .

If one makes it difficult for people to dispose of rubbish then it only encourages people to fly-tip. This in turn costs the Councils more money to clear it up in the long run than what it would cost to keep the refuse sites open in the first place. I feel that the Council have made a rod for their own backs over this issue.

Why not install CCTV and then fine the lazy beggars when they are caught doing it, you could then seize and crush their vehicles, that might get the message across, oh I forgot, in the UK our councils and government are too spineless to actually punish people for wrongdoing. You will probably find that these people are all in claim of benefits and are working illegally "house clearing" or thieving anyway, why else would they not want to dispose of the rubbish legitimately. I used to use this facility all the time, but since the new recycling scheme I have to admit I haven't been there once, so possibly it is time to say good bye to it. I can't help thinking though that the removal of the giant recycling bins will open up the space and leave a greater surface area for more fly tipping.

You can get a permit as long as the vehicle is domestic use only (e.g. not insured for business & not sign written) which allows you access to the tip - at least you can in Bournemouth where I live.

If everybody in vans were allowed in with a utility bill every person who lives in Bournemouth & does house clearances/gardening
/building/etc would just take their waste in with a utility bill instead of paying for commercial waste disposal.

You can get a permit as long as the vehicle is domestic use only (e.g. not insured for business & not sign written) which allows you access to the tip - at least you can in Bournemouth where I live.

If everybody in vans were allowed in with a utility bill every person who lives in Bournemouth & does house clearances/gardening

/building/etc would just take their waste in with a utility bill instead of paying for commercial waste disposal.

Why should the council taxpayer subsidise profit making businesses?
Because it would be cheaper to let them in than have to deal with fly-tipping, not forgetting that the council can make money from the recycling.

If the waste has come from a household improvement then that waste is 'domestic' for which the householder has been paying council tax.

Fly tipping is caused by councils trying to be smart without thinking through the consequences.
