Why do these people dump their rubbish in the countryside?

Flytipping has been a problem in the countryside for a long time. Wherever you go in the countryside, be it main road or by-road, somebody has decided to dump their rubbish in a convenient layby or gateway.

That person has made a decision not to take their rubbish to their nearest landfill site but to drive into the countrside and to dump their rubbish wherever they can without being seen or traced.

Why do they do it? Are the landfill site charges too high and the restrictions too severe? Are there not enough landfill sites? Or is it a mentality problem of a small minority that we will never overcome?
