LucreLout and those opposed to their statements about fly tipping make good arguments on both sides.
Out here in the Shire, our local county council ran a consultation about the local recycling centres (and tips) because they had to start cutting costs and they felt that social services were not to be touched, so others (like waste management) had to take the hit. The choices were 'we keep the centres open 3 days a week' or 'we'll pay to use the centres'. The former was voted down for precisely the reason LucreLout stated: "If you shut the centres for four days a week, fly tipping will go through the roof". So, the council opted for the other option... now we have to pay to get rid of 'non-household rubbish'. Those with vans get to apply for an e-permit, which gives them access once a month. Those with rental vans are SOL unless the rental is for 3 days.
So, unscrupulous commercial operators, who were able to get away with dumping 'non-household' waste (i.e. DIY/building waste, which the council is *not* obliged to process) at the local recycling centre now happily go and fly tip, or, if they're close to the border to another county/district, drive across and dump it there if they can (but the councils there are also now doing the same kind of registered vehicle schemes as they do here). Those who don't own vehicles got screwed. Those who used to just walk over with a bag of recyclable/household stuff they wanted to get rid of got screwed (because of 'elf-'n-safety). Where does that end up? The unscrupulous ones fly tip or shove their stuff into the council rubbish bins on the road-side. The honest ones will grind their teeth and pay the £26 charge from the council to take it away, or beg their friends to help them out with a sedan (which is fine to go to the centre with).
Ironically, all this tightening up and cost cutting has led to our county-wide recycling proportion dropping from 72% (one of the highest in the country) to 56%.
