WHAT WE DO

Fly-tipping Action Wales exists to combat the threat against wildlife and humans and fight the damage to the environment in our countryside and towns by putting a stop to fly-tipping.

We work with over 50 partners, including the 22 Local Authorities across Wales, the national police and fire services and Natural Resources Wales to reduce the number of cases of fly-tipping until Wales becomes free from this crime.

WHY WE DO IT

In 2012/13 nearly 35,000 fly-tipping incidents were reported in Wales.

These incidents cost the Welsh taxpayer £2 million to clear up.

Fly-tipping is a crime. If caught you could face fines of up to £50,000 or imprisonment.

Fly-tipping is a blight on our towns and countryside and causes a threat to humans and to wildlife.

HOW WE DO IT

As a partnership we engage with households, private land-owners, property landlords, business owners and communities to tackle fly-tipping together. 

We educate the public about the duty of care towards their waste. Every one of us has a responsibility to ensure our waste is dealt with responsibly.

We provide advice and information on ways of disposing waste.

We support those who need help to tackle fly-tipping.

We use a range of innovative surveillance techniques and enforcement measures to catch fly-tippers.
