Reading Borough Council Fly Tipping Case Study
Like many councils, Reading Borough Council (RBC) experiences regular fly tipping, or street tipping, incidents. Currently this is around five per day, or to put it another way: 1,835 fly tipping incidents were reported to Reading Council in 2019-20. As well as ruining beauty spots, towns, and countryside this illegal dumping affects local residents, and the problem can be a labour intensive and costly one for councils to manage. Each reported incident needs to be investigated before the offending waste can be removed. This consumes council resources and budget as well as causing unpleasantness for residents and passers-by.
