Fly-tipping prosecutions

Figures on fly-tipping prosecutions brought by the Environment Agency since separate collection of data began last year have been provided by Environment Minister Elliot Morley.1

Prior to 2002, fly-tipping was not distinguished from other waste offences on the Agency's prosecutions database.

The Agency took 252 fly-tipping prosecutions in 2002, resulting in fines of £228,620. The corresponding figures for 2003 up to the end of October are 210 and £225,702, indicating an increase in the average fine of almost a fifth.

Fly-tipping increased significantly last year (ENDS Report 340, p 20 ). The Agency believes there are some 50,000 incidents in England and Wales each year.
