Fly-tipping prosecutions plateau

The number of prosecutions brought by the Environment Agency and local authorities in England for fly-tipping almost doubled between 1999 and 2002, before dropping slightly in 2003, according to figures issued by the Home Office in June.1

Evidence that fly-tipping was on the increase was presented by environmental charity EnCams in 2003 (ENDS Report 340, p 20 ). According to figures released earlier this year, derived from the Agency's Flycapture database, councils spend £50 million per year to remove 75,000 fly-tips per month.

Measures to extend local authority powers to tackle offenders were brought in by the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 (ENDS Report 365, p 48 ).
