Fly-tipping in England and Wales cost councils £40m in 2010 but only £692,000 was raised in fines, figures suggest.Daily Mail:
Rubbish is illegally dumped at least once a minute, according to a report released yesterday. It found 656,000 incidents of fly-tipping were recorded last year, costing taxpayers almost £25million in clear-up fees.Can't find the original report on the Countryside Alliance website as of yet but something strange here.
UPDATE: The Countryside Alliance have tweeted that their report is out giving links to the BBC, Daily Mail and Express but not to the actual report. The tweet says the cost is £40m but the Daily Mail is still reporting £25m.
