EA makes a drama out of flytipping

Flytipping has been brought to the stage in one-off show to educate businesses in Liverpool about the problem. The drama was commissioned by the Environment Agency (EA) to raise awareness of the serious consequences of dumping waste, which can include fines of up to £50,000 and prison sentences.

The play, entitled How to Ruin the Family Business, was part of a business networking event organised by the EA with the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.

EA director of corporate affairs Helen McCallum said: Liverpool City Council spent over £1m last year cleaning up
fly-tipped waste. This is paid for by
the taxpayer, and I for one dont want
my taxes being spent cleaning up after waste criminals.

Business Resource Efficiency & Waste Programme national programme manager Arwyn Jones commented on the play: It was part of an ongoing campaign to make sure businesses and the community in the Mersey area know what their responsibilities are. The campaign is designed to encourage and support businesses to make better use of their resources and manage their waste more efficiently, helping them to save money and the environment.
