Fly-tipping and serious and organised waste crime is a significant problem for communities. It costs local authorities a huge amount and has a wider social and environmental impact. Fly-tipping incidents are on the rise, and in response, the Government has introduced new powers to tackle illegal waste sites. 

Join Westminster Briefing on 30th October to gain a comprehensive overview of the new powers and learn how you can develop effective partnerships to tackle waste crime and fly-tipping. This is a good opportunity to hear good practice and take ideas back to your setting to improve your strategy to tackle waste crime. 

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • Comprehensive overview of the national landscape and government action on waste crime
  • Understanding and employing new powers to tackle serious and organised waste crime
  • Bringing organised criminals to account
  • Tackling larger-scale fly-tipping, hazardous waste and organised gangs
  • The role of local authorities in investigating, cleaning and taking enforcement action
  • Preventing waste crime: targeting the worst fly-tipping hotspots and delivering long-lasting improvements
  • Learning from successful local models in tackling fly-tipping

About the Event:
