Taking action against fly-tipping


Durham County Council

Durham County Council is delivering its award winning “Operation Stop It” a multi-agency approach involving the Council, Police, Environment Agency and Crimestoppers to tackle fly tipping. This has involved awareness campaigns, increasing outlets for legal trade waste disposal, and installing CCTV at fly tipping hotspots to catch criminals, even confiscating and crushing their vehicles. The work is seen as national best practice and since its launch there has been a 23 per cent reduction in fly-tipping across the county, resulting in a saving of more than £100,000 in clean-up and disposal costs.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
