Many of the general public make the effort to take unwanted items to their local recycling centres only to be turned away or charged for it. If this was relaxed far more people would make the effort instead of finding a dodgy waste removal company to collect it. These Dodgers get paid to pick the waste up in good faith and then tip anywhere convenient to them to avoid the cost of disposal. If we can stop this at source it would firstly cut council costs of clearing fly tipped waste and also put these unreputable companies out of business resulting in a much cleaner and safer countryside that we all love. 

I've heard many stories from friends who own vehicles that don't fit the description of the recycling centres rules and many of these aren't tradesmen they just own vans or trailers who are being turned away.

It is horrendous that the general public are being charged for recycling and from my experience many reputable companies dispose of thier waste legally also.

There is a minority of small outfits that avoid the disposal costs but if we could encourage everyone to go to their recycling centres without the risk of being charged or turned away these outfits will lose their source of business.
