Defra changes flytipping reports

The means by which local authorities in England report fly-tipping incidents and any actions taken against perpetrators is changing.

Council reports will move from the Flycapture system to a fly-tipping reporting module in WasteDataFlow from October and will apply to data from July.

A Defra spokeswoman said the change would “assist in reducing the data reporting burdens on local authorities by moving from monthly to quarterly reporting”.

Flycapture was launched in 2004 and provides the Government and enforcement authorities with an overview of fly-tipping activity, trends and costs. It is also used by the Environment Agency.

New guidance for the WasteDataFlow module is being drafted and when ready will be published here.
