Mystery Solved

Thanks to RLK, I spent a bit of my precious time, OK, OK, my time this a.m. trying to figure out what the hell fly-tipping was all about. I thought RLK had come to his senses & had taken up fly fishing rather than building renovation, but nooooo, I was wrong. Nothing new about that.
"Fly-tipping" is a British term for illegally dumping trash somewhere other than an authorized trash dump. It is "the illegal deposit of any waste onto land i.e. waste dumped or tipped on a site with no licence to accept waste". Fly-tipped waste generally consists of large items of rubbish that are dumped illegally on land instead of being disposed of properly at a landfill site or tip. Some people refer to this as "dumping".
