The government published a report recently on environmental crime sentencing. They are taking a “keen interest” in tacking waste crime and want to ensure that courts become tougher on both individuals and companies who continue to carry out fly-tipping, dumping of hazardous waste and breaching abatement notices. They are working together with DEFRA and the Environment Agency who intend to publish a joint statement regarding this in the autumn – so watch this space.
The EA delivered a presentation outlining their new approach to Waste Crime Prevention at the recent London, Southern & Eastern Regional Meeting of the ESA . The new approach is aiming to crack down on illegal practices and a 24 hour incident hotline has been set up, so if you know of any activity of this sort you can call 0800 80 70 60 any time.
