The Environment Agency corporate scorecard published 13 December 2019 gives in section 3 under “Illegal Waste main contributors” the number fly-tipping incidents handled by the EA as 11 for the two years July 2018 – June 2019.

I put in a request for a breakdown of those cases. Out of the 11 cases there were only 2 prosecutions. One was carried out by Burnley Council to whom the case was handed and one by The Environment Agency. In both cases the vehicle was seized and crushed.
