It was only a couple of weeks ago that I posted about the growing issue of flytipping but having now personally suffered from it (again) on the farm, I felt it necessary to post some images and once again raise the subject. Yesterday I walked our hedgerows on the farm, assessing their condition as we plan for a new countryside stewardship agreement. On my route I came across not one, not two, but three piles of rubbish that had been dumped by some despicable individual who couldn’t care less about the people or wildlife affected by their action. The largest area included what looked like a number of children’s toys, strewn all over the place, and a fridge, an old favourite for flytippers. We could put a gate at the top of the field but that would mean spending another £300 unnecessarily and would make tractor turning and entrance to the fields much more difficult. Why should we have to give in?! There are lots of areas on the farm that are affected, even the sea wall, where I find it incredible the lengths that people will go to dump rubbish illegally. Surely it is less effort to just head to the dump like everybody else! If anyone has an example of how they have successfully dealt with flytipping I would love to hear about it.
