Local Authority Recorded Fly-tipping, 2011-12
The key points from the latest release are:
- The number of fly-tipping incidents recorded by local authorities has consistently fallen since the peak in 2007-08. In 2011-12 there were 36,411 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 majority of fly-tipping incidents (42 per cent) continue to occur on highway land, i.e. public highways or roads, the number of incidents on this type of land saw the biggest decrease over the last year.
- Although the number of fly-tipping incidents has continued to fall since 2007-08, the proportion of incidents involving household waste (including both black bags and other household waste) remained relatively unchanged (accounting for 67 per cent in 2011-12).
- Whilst estimated clearance costs also continued to fall, they fell at a slower rate than the number of fly-tipping incidents. Clearance costs fell by just under £1 million, from a peak of £3.07 million in 2007-08 to £2.10 million on 2011-12.
- The number of enforcement actions taken in Wales has continued to increase to over 30,000 in 2011-12. Of those where local authorities carried out prosecutions, the vast majority, as with preceding years, resulted in a fine.
