Ena. I never implied it was you who were pointing a finger. That was Jarvo's charge.
My evidence comes from my own eyes, not any kind of statistics.
I know from the surrounding areas that there is an increase in fly tipping, as the OP has suggested. I also know personally of people paying other people to take away their excess rubbish. Some of these people are not licensed to removed rubbish and therefore who knows where and what they are doing with it, hence the increase in fly tipping. If you care to look on PAD you will find that Mick from the forum here on WW often posts photos of our beauty spots littered by fly tippers, as he does on the forum.
It's rare that Mick and myself agree on much but I would encourage him to provide more evidence of fly tipping when he is on his travels around Wigan.
