Rural businesses and landowners have welcomed a group of MPs’ call for on-the-spot fines for fly tipping.

The Communities and Local Government Select Committee wants those caught fly-tipping household items to get fixed penalty fines.

The CLA east regional director Ben Underwood said: “When you add the recommendations made by the Select Committee to the Government’s waste crime proposals and harsher sentencing guidelines implemented in July last year, we are definitely moving towards a position of zero tolerance on fly-tipping.”

Earlier this year CLA East backed calls for organised illegal waste operators’ vehicles to be seized and crushed. It estimates clearing up after fly tippers costs rural businesses £150 million a year.
