An annual report which includes information on incidents, enforcement actions and prosecution outcomes.
- The number of fly-tipping incidents recorded by local authorities has consistently fallen since the peak in 2007-08. In 2012-13 there were over 34,800 fly-tipping incidents in Wales, the lowest number of incidents recorded by local authorities since 2006-07. The continued fall in incidents may be due to increased community engagement, education and enforcement action over recent years.
- Whilst the number of fly-tipping incidents on highway land (i.e. public highways or roads) continued to fall, the highest proportion of incidents (43 per cent) occurred on this type of land during 2012-13.
- Although the number of fly-tipping incidents has continued to fall, the proportion of incidents involving household waste (including both black bags and other household waste) has increased over the last two years (accounting for 71 per cent in 2012-13).
- Estimated clearance costs also continued to fall, falling by just under £1.2 million, from a peak of £3.07 million in 2007-08 to £1.89 million in 2012-13.
- During 2012-13 the number of enforcement actions taken in Wales fell for the first time since 2007-08. Of those where local authorities carried out prosecutions, the vast majority, as with preceding years, resulted in a fine.
