Data on fly-tipping incidents and actions

Fly-tipping is an increasing problem, with councils spending vast sums of money on clearing these blights on our environment; and it’s an issue in many wards. If this is a concern in your area you may be interested in the LGA’s new LG Inform report which explores data on fly-tipping, including: location, size, cost of clearance and enforcement action. You can compare your report against other councils or explore the data in more detail.

In case you haven’t seen it before, LG Inform offers a helpful way of comparing your council’s performance with others. Find out more about LG Inform.
