Fly Tipping

I have been asked by the Environmental Agency to pass on the following information.

 The Environment Agency have recently responded to and are investigating two substantial illegal waste deposits on farmland located in Duxford and Hinxton in South Cambridgeshire.

 The fly tip in Duxford occurred on the evening/early hours of 21/22 December 2017.  On this occasion, 29 tonnes of mixed construction and demolition waste was tipped onto a concrete pad.

The Hinxton fly tip occurred on 22 February 2018 and we estimate there to have been 15 – 20 tonnes of mixed municipal waste tipped onto a concrete pad.

We believe that sites are being accessed due to their proximity to the M11 motorway and ease of access onto land.

We would urge farmers and land owners in the locality to take precautionary action and secure access to farmland and concrete pads, to prevent them being used in the large scale deposit of waste.  

Any further information or suspicious activity can be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111, the Environment Agency incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60 or to your local Rural Crime Team via 101.
