Fly-tipping Increases

Welsh Government figures show that fly-tipping is getting worse – 37% worse in Monmouthshire compared to 80% worse in Newport, hardest hit of the Welsh counties.  Waste tipped on farms costs landowners an average of £844 to clear, says the CLA.  Fly-tipping of domestic waste has decreased slightly.  An Abergavenny man was recently fined £200 plus £2,000 costs for tipping garden waste on the Blorenge.
