Minister for local environment Ben Bradshaw, Environment Agency chair Sir John Harman and Local Government Association chair Lord Sandy Bruce Lockhart joined forces for the launch of the pledge.
Speaking at the launch Bradshaw said: Organised criminals are making large sums of money by charging households and businesses to dispose of rubbish, before illegally dumping it. It is important that we are all aware of where our waste goes and play our part in ensuring it is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
While Sir Harman added: Over 40% of the fly-tipped incidents we deal with are of hazardous waste and the problem costs us over a quarter of a million pounds every year to clean up.
Todays event is all about raising awareness of the problem and I am really pleased to see MPs from all over the country taking part.
