The Biggest Problem With Fly Tipping And How You Can Fix It
Last month, BBC’s Panorama programme tackled the hot topic of fly tipping and asked why so few people without a waste disposal license are prosecuted. According to Keep Britain Tidy, fly tipping is defined as the illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it.
Offenders can receive hefty fly tipping fines or go to prison and local authorities face eye-watering bills to sort out the near one million incidents reported in 2019/20. In Sunderland, prosecutions have already taken place this year and in Boston, more than 100 incidents have been reported in three years on the same street.
So what is the biggest problem with fly tipping? The answer is that it still happens and the third lockdown has clearly not stopped offenders. The possibility of a fine and up to five years in prison might not be a strong enough deterrent for some. Local authorities across the country are having to deal with more incidents too, according to the latest figures.
