Changing nature of fly-tipping

Those working in the countryside will be all too aware of anti-social behaviour such as fly-tipping. In the last year of recorded statistics there were more than one million reported incidents across the country. Affecting nearly two-thirds of landowners every year, it’s a crime which has a huge detrimental impact across rural communities. 
Country Land & Business Association President, Tim Breitmeyer describes the rise of criminal scale fly-tipping. He closes by saying “Like other forms of rural crime, fly-tipping is a complex problem with no silver bullet. Local authorities, politicians and police forces all like to talk tough on this issue, but until these words are matched with a common sensical and joined up approach on waste, we’re likely to continue to face an uphill struggle.”
