Herts. Waste Partnership – case study on the Fly Tipping Toolkit in the R&W Strategy

CONGRATULATIONS to the Hertfordshire Waste Partnership for national recognition of its exemplary work in combatting fly-tipping on a planned and co-ordinated basis: 

Resources & Waste Strategy for England, 18th December 2018 (pages 90-91)

4.1.3 Launching a ‘fly-tipping toolkit’

“There are examples of good practice that can be drawn on, for example the Hertfordshire Waste Partnership which brought together a range of organisations to agree on a common approach to tackling fly-tipping and sharing intelligence, which saw an 18% fall in incidents between 2016/17 and 2017/18. Evidence suggests that a lack of knowledge and experience sharing is contributing to the problem. We will therefore create a ‘fly-tipping toolkit’, a web-based tool hosted by the National Fly-tipping Prevention Group to help tackle the issue.

It will cover:

  • How local authorities can set up and run an effective fly-tipping partnership;
  • How to use new technology to report fly-tipping;
  • Examples of existing good practice to prevent fly-tipping;
  • How to deal with fly-tipping associated with unauthorised encampments;
  • How to best share intelligence within a partnership and with other partnerships;
  • How to present robust cases to the courts to ensure tougher penalties;
  • How to best promote the duty of care for individuals and businesses.”
