Fixed penalty notice actions reported by local authorities and published in annual statistics on a financial year basis are summarised in the table below.

In May 2016, local authorities in England were given the power to issue fixed penalty notices for small scale fly-tipping so these will be captured in the data for 2016/17 and 2017/18. Prior to this date, local authorities issued fly-tippers with fixed penalty notices in relation to littering, duty of care or anti-social behaviour.
