According to the Echo someone at Bidston tip has been naughty and now the fraud investigators are going in. Something to do with not charging for tipping or at least not putting it through the books I presume (alleged. You have to say that in case you get sued I was told smile )

Can't stand the place personally as it usually takes forever to get to the tipping point. Then they have cones to stop you getting near a skip. People throw stuff where they like instead of the designated skip and no one says anything and lastly if what you are tipping is possibly worth anything you can be assured someone will tell you to put it to one side. Actually I don't mind the last one as it is being recycled even if the guy is making a few bob.

I've not been to other tips but believe the likes of Bromborough (?) is much more user friendly?

I think that scam goes as far back as the Tip.

They do have cctv camera's but if they work is another thing.

The Tip is not Car Friendly and In my experience any help
from the staff at drop off is only when there is something
in it for them. ( A Few Quid ) Ive never see anyone help
an old dear, only to point. But that may be how there told
to work, but if i was there i would want to be kept busy.

Part of the the Tipping Problem is that you don't know
which bay to use until you drive past the dam thing.
And now paper is down and around the corner.

I cant wait for the day we charge them for us
sorting all our stuff as they make money from it lo.

I worked at the recyling centre for a while and from talking from someone who still does it seems that the amount of waste dumped by several local authorities dosent match the money paid,
