There may well come a time when you need the help of a Cambridge house clearance company to help you get rid of lots of household waste. And when that time does come, do make sure that you check the firm you’re using is properly licensed or you could find yourself hit with a hefty fine if they illegally dispose of the rubbish.

According to the Manchester Evening News, landlord Tahsin Ali Jawdet was ordered to pay over £1,000 in fines and costs after a massive pile of rubbish was found illegally fly-tipped on grassland in Harpurhey and traced back to him.

The 57-year-old admitted paying unlicensed removal men to get rid of the rubbish, which included soft furnishings, wooden cabinets and tables.

Councillor Rabnawaz Akbar said: “Fly-tipping is a blight on our communities and our residents should not be left to suffer the consequences of such selfish crimes. This prosecution shows that we are determined to crack down on individuals or businesses who dump waste and track down those responsible.”
