Waste crime: Sustainable Clean-Up Solutions (Feb ’23)

s Waste crime GovUK

Waste crime can take on many different forms from the very visible dumping of waste to fraudulent producer responsibility claims, deliberate breaches of permits, metal theft and money laundering.

It is estimated to cost the UK economy £1 billion per year – that’s the same as the combined starting salary of over 38,000 newly qualified nurses.

We have all seen first-hand the impact waste crime can have on our local communities, business and the environment.
