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 the 30th of 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
- Working with the Environment Agency to tackle 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
