This consultation ended 28 August 2014.
Details of outcome
This consultation will help to develop a new fly-tipping strategy for Wales.
This strategy sets out a series of key actions which when delivered will achieve our outcomes and deliver our vision of ‘A Fly-tipping Free Wales’.
Fly-tipping is the common term used to describe waste illegally deposited on land. Welsh Government is committed to tackling fly-tipping. Since 2007 the Welsh Government has been working with Fly-tipping Action Wales (FtAW) to reduce fly-tipping.
This consultation identifies some high level outcomes which will give direction to counter future fly-tipping across Wales. These include:
- All key organisations in Wales commit to eliminating fly-tipping and that commitment is embedded in their strategies and day to day operations
- Fly-tipping is widely understood as being socially unacceptable
- It becomes easier for people to deal with their waste responsibly
- Anyone who fly-tips is caught and punished appropriately.
We want your views on this draft strategy which sets out what we and our partners will do to reduce fly-tipping across Wales.
