To think it's skanky if you can afford designer jewellery and you...

fly tip your rubbish.

Found Armani packaging (watches I think) in the pile of rubbish dumped in the alleyway behind our house. So whoever's done it is obviously wealthy enough, they just don't give a fuck.

I just want to vent really. It's not on. I've got a good idea who did it too, but I can't prove anything.

Anyone who fly tips is an irredeemable piece of shit.

Could be stole, dumped the boxes and got away.

Fly tippers are the scum of the earth.

Anyone caught flytipping should be sentenced to detention on a landfill site for at least a month.

Fakes or stolen? Horrible either way.

They may have paid someone to dispose of it and they've dumped it but YA still not BU

Well these people are skanks for fly tipping. But being skint wouldn’t be an excuse to fly tip. Wealth is irrelevant - littering or fly tipping makes you a dick.

So it's acceptable to fly tip if you can't afford designer stuff? Fly tipping is skanky full stop. It doesn't matter what it is.

Although if you found packaging from multiple watches, I would say they were more likely to have been stolen.

You'd think if you'd stolen them you'd keep the boxes.

I’m surprised it’s flytipped to be honest, I thought designer packaging was in demand as people then pedal fakes inside of authentic packaging.

It's disgusting. There's charity shop near me that has been closed since March, there are signs on the door saying not to leave anything. I went past this morning and you can barely see the shop front because of all the shite that's been dumped. Most of it looks like household rubbish as a number of the bags have split.

Utter scum

FWIW if we’re on the subject of fly tipping, I live in an area that is quite bad for it and last week I came across a huge stash of Il Divo CDs someone had dumped grin definitely the weirdest flytip I’ve seen so far!

Buying designer gear is different to having class and or a social conscience.
People that fly tip simply don’t care.
YANBU though, it’s really annoying.

Viviennemary Tue 04-Aug-20 20:25:59

More like theft I'd say.

TwentyViginti Tue 04-Aug-20 20:28:08

I thought Armani was chavvy anyway?

They are either knock offs or nicked, 100%

thepeopleversuswork Tue 04-Aug-20 20:46:27

It's skanky either way. Neither here nor there whether its designer.

FlamingoAndJohn Tue 04-Aug-20 20:46:34

It could be that someone has paid for a load of junk to be taken to the tip but they dumped it.

GrumpyHoonMain Tue 04-Aug-20 20:48:57

Flytipping is usually done by builders or those paid for disposing waste.

It's called recycling.

WhirleyGiggler Tue 04-Aug-20 20:51:43

Reckon they have been stolen

DonLewis Tue 04-Aug-20 20:53:39

Love the word skanky. Skanky. Skanky. If you say it too many times though it gets weird.

You're, of course, quite right. They may have paid someone to get rid of it and they've dumped it. Legally though, it's still their waste and their responsibility to check the company have a license.

PatriciaPerch Tue 04-Aug-20 20:54:57

it will be an illegal 'waste disposal firm' but if there is an address amongst all the rubbish, posh or not, they will get fined too.

Always check whoever is disposing of your waste/rubbish (other than the council) has a proper license to do so!

I think it’s skanky to fly tip full stop.
