5.7 Fly Tipping

This section will look at the offence of Fly tipping, this is again a part of the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT 1990, section 33. The previous offences in this training programme have been mainly observational offences. An officer deals with an offence he witnesses. Fly tipping can be ‘caught in the act’ and that’s an easier process however, when an officer is responding to reports or stumbles across it then there are more investigatory tasks to be undertaken.
