GOVERNMENT STEPS UP FIGHT AGAINST ILLEGAL WASTE OPERATORS WITH COORDINATED ACTION

29/05/2019

These two government news releases relate to the same sting operation, but it highlights that the work we have been doing to encourage coordinated action by diverse government departments is starting to have effect. Our illegals reports are shared with the EA/ SEPA/ NRW/ NIEA, ebay & HMRC and we now know that all parties are taking action to follow up these reports, with a very high proportion being found to be illegal. There is lots of work going on in the background that we are not able to discuss or publicise, but we want members to know that the fight against illegal vehicle recyclers remains one of our priorities. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/environment-agency-and-hmrc-sting-targets-60-illegal-waste-sites https://www.gov.ukhttps://www.gov.uk/government/news/27-illegal-waste-sites-uncovered-by-environment-agency-and-hmrc-sting
