Risks of leaving your site vacant over Christmas shutdown
A vacant site poses many risks for you and your company. These are some of the most common ones, based on feedback from our current and former clients.
Dark nights: this provides ample cover for would be intruders to enter the site unnoticed.
Kids off school: this leads to an increase in anti-social behaviour, including trespassing and vandalism, which can also result in them getting injured while on your site.
Alcohol: people tend to drink more over Christmas, which can also lead to anti-social behaviour, as described above.
Financial strain: times are tough for many families, especially at Christmas, making the theft of assets from an open site seem more appealing.
Flytipping: with more rubbish building up over Christmas and fewer collections by the council, many will see an empty site as the perfect spot for flytipping.
