England’s fly-tipped rubbish ‘could stretch from London to Moscow’ | ITV News

The amount of rubbish fly-tipped across England each year could stretch from London to Moscow, council leaders have warned.

Taxpayers footed a total bill of more than £57 million for cleaning up dumped rubbish last year, an increase of 13%, the Local Government Association (LGA) said.

New analysis by the LGA shows that, in 2016/17, there were 492,139 incidents where amounts of waste the size of a small van, transit van or tipper truck were illegally dumped.
