New research reveals that 144 incidents of fly-tipping occur every day across the Greater Manchester areas, costing councils nearly £4.9 million in clearance and enforcement, according to a new report.
Research commissioned by Manchester-based start-up Dsposal and supported by GC Business Growth Hub has been released in a report named ‘Tip of the binberg: Exploring the full cost of waste crime in Greater Manchester’.
Charges have been brought against two men in Swansea for ‘several years’ worth of illegal activities likely to cause harm to the environment and human health.
Free skips in every ward and free bulky waste collections are one of a number of options being considered by Walsall Council as incidents of fly-tipping in the local authority continue to rise.
