Happy world animal day!
Happy World Animal Day! All of us at CBS would like to increase awareness & educate our customers on the effects fly tipping has on animals. We want to help create a world where animals are always recognised as sentient beings & full regard is always paid to their welfare.
Known as the illegal dumping of debris and waste without the permission of a land owner’. This has become a massive problem for local councils. Fly tipping is punishable by hefty fines, community service and even a prison sentence of up to 5 years!
Dumping foreign objects in places where they do not belong can have a massive impact on the environment. The illegal dumping of waste on public land can have a real impact on local wildlife. Chemicals in waste can contaminate soil. Animals who use contaminated soil can suffer from health problems as a result of fly tipping.
Most people look for a quiet, remote location where they won’t get caught to fly tip. What they don’t consider is that the location of their waste can have real repercussions on the surrounding environment. When waste is dumped in a river, it can cause blockages that are hazardous to anyone who frequents the area. The sight of a discarded shopping trolley in an urban canal might be so common that we barely notice it, but the introduction of a foreign object into this environment can have a hugely detrimental impact on ducks, birds and other wildlife. Rubbish can soil habitats and create choking hazards for everything from roe deer to rabbits and can create health issues for their populations.
How can we help?
Many people dispose of hazardous materials when they fly tip. This is because they can’t think of another way to get rid of a potentially dangerous substance. Our comprehensive waste management service gets rid of all waste safely and securely, taking the first steps to restoring the environment to its former glory.
