Crimewave are happy to hear about the Government’s plan to crackdown on fly tipping. A press release published in April has detailed how new grants for councils will fund a range of projects for Local Authorities to trial in order to put a stop to fly tipping.
Fly tipping costs the Government up to £392 million a year, and poses a risk to the environment and public health. Environment Minister Jo Churchill MP has said “I want to make sure that recycling and the correct disposal of rubbish is free, accessible and easy for households. No one should be tempted to fly tip or turn to waste criminals and rogue operators”.
