Data Provider: Welsh Government Clearance costs of fly-tipping by local authority

These figures are published as Official Statistics. The costs on the Flycapture database for the size categories 'single items', 'single black bags', 'car boot or less', 'small van loads' and 'transit van loads' are set in the system based on national averages. For the other categories, 'tipper lorry loads' and 'significant multiple loads', the costs are entered by the local authority. However, in the guidance national average costs per loads are provided to help local authorities calculate their estimates. This approach aims to reduce differences in local estimation methods and therefore allow for equivalent comparisons to be made at the local authority level.

General description
Summary of fly-tipping incidents, enforcement actions and prosecution outcomes.

Data collection and calculation
The statistics are based on the returns made by local authorities to the Waste Data Flow database. The statistics do not cover fly-tipping incidents on private land, and not all incidents of fly-tipping will be reported to the local authority.

The costs for the size categories (single items, single black bags, car boot or less, small van loads and transit van loads) are set in the system based on national averages. For the other categories (tipper lorry loads and significant multiple loads), the costs are entered by the local authority. As these costs vary, a rise or decrease in incidents will not necessarily have the same rise or decrease in costs.

It should be noted that prosecutions do not necessarily take place in the same year as the relevant fly-tipping incident occurs.

Whilst fly-tipping figures are no longer designated as “National Statistics”, they continue to be published in accordance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
