The Government review of waste policy in England, launched on 14 June 2011, set out a number of measures we consider will act as a real deterrent to those responsible for waste crime. These measures include working closely with landowner organisations, to increase reporting of fly-tipping incidents on private land and sharing best practice on how to reduce the risk of fly-tipping, for example through improved security and intelligence sharing.

As part of its wider initial public response to the May 2011 report by the independent farming regulation task force, due in the autumn, the Government will address the recommendations made in the report, in respect of-fly-tipping on farmland.
