A HUGE increase in the number of reports of fly-tipping in the Bradford district is due to more people knowing how to report incidents rather than more rubbish being dumped, says a new report.

The number of reports of fly-tipping has doubled from 4,602 in 2012/13 to 9,271 in 2016/17. But a new report on fly-tipping in the district shows that during the same period the amount of rubbish collected by the Council’s fly-tipping teams had remained constant – 4,000 tonnes were collected in 2012/13 and 4,000 tonnes were collected in 2016/17.


There has also been a big rise in the number of prosecutions over fly-tipping and littering in recent years.

The report, which was presented to the Council’s Environment and Waste Management Scrutiny Committee yesterday, said “easier reporting mechanisms” to let the Council know about fly-tipping, such as online tools, were a major factor in the rise.

It also points out that one fly-tip in the Shipley area led to 10 individual reports being logged in a few hours.

The report says: “The increasing awareness of and access to services across the 24-hour day is a significant factor in the rising levels of reports.”
