Local authority recorded fly-tipping
The annual report previously published as National Statistics was discontinued in 2014, following the consultation ‘Proposals concerning the publication of Official Statistics’. We have reinstated the publication of StatsWales tables and headline figures and whilst the figures are no longer designated as “National Statistics”, they continue to be published in accordance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
- During 2013-14, 32,934 fly-tipping incidents were reported by local authorities in Wales. This number has consistently fallen since a peak in 2007-08.
- Whilst the number of fly-tipping incidents on highway land (i.e. public highways or roads) continued to fall, the highest proportion of reported incidents (41 per cent) occurred on this type of land during 2013-14.
- The proportion of fly-tipping incidents involving household waste decreased slightly to 70 per cent in 2013-14, from 71 per cent in 2012-13.
