The impact of fly-tipping on private land is costing members and the industry between £100m-£150m per annum to clean up. In the spring the CLA joined the landowner partnership project funded by Defra to run some pilot projects.
The CLA is involved in both of the pilot projects, one in the West Midlands and the other in North West, to help collate and report fly-tipping incidents onto the flycapture database. We are supporting the pilots at a regional level by encouraging fly-tipped incidents to be reported to them as well as working closely with Environment Agency campaign called- Recognise-Report-Reduce, initiative to reduce fly- tipping.
Recent figures from an Environment Agency survey show that clean up cost average £809 per removal and that half of all material that is illegally dumped on private land is household waste, followed by construction waste and used car tyres.
The project aims to identify the scale of the problem for private landowners so that ultimately the problem can be reduced, this project will run until 31st March 2010 so let us know when a fly tipping incident takes place, for further information please contact the West Midlands or North West office.
