Rugby council teams up to tackle fly-tipping in Warwick district

RUGBY Borough Council (RBC) is teaming up with its Warwick counterparts to help tackle fly-tipping.

Warwick District Council (WDC) bosses have agreed to work with RBC’s enforcement team to start investigating and prosecuting fly-tippers.

The suggested plan would see Warwick collect evidence and pass it on to colleagues in Rugby to investigate and produce prosecution case files – at a cost of £75 per hour. This was deemed a better option than having its own in-house investigation team.

The move follows criticism WDC was allowing fly-tippers to get away it.




Warwick district has the highest level of fly-tipping incidents in the county, with more than 1,000 incidents reported per year, compared to less than 300 in Stratford.

But concern was voiced earlier this year that despite the council having potential evidence about suspected fly-tippers – including names within dumped rubbish and CCTV images – it had not taken any action to prosecute.
