The Environment Agency dealt with a total of 1047 illegal waste dumping incidents (a rise from 676 in 2008-09)
- The Environment Agency took 165 prosecutions forward in relation to illegal waste activities, resulting in over £ 500,000 in fines. The Environment Agency continues to investigate and enforce increasingly serious and more organised waste crimes.
- Average fine per prosecution was £5,022 where a fine was the outcome
- Offenders prosecuted by the Environment Agency for waste crime offences have received a range of penalties from custodial sentences, curfew orders and in some cases had their assets seized.
- The rise in incidents dealt with by the Environment Agency in 2009-10 reflects the greater support it has given to some local authorities in tackling small-scale fly-tipping in certain areas of high waste crime. The increase in small-scale flytipping incidents has resulted in a decrease in the average fine.
- The numbers of serious organised waste crime incidents dealt with by the Environment Agency fell slightly from 165 in 2008-9 to 154 incidents 2009-10 in England.
