POLL: Should there be a harsher punishment for fly-tippers?

By Advertiser Reporter

Government figures show there are four fly-tipping incidents every day in average in Newark and Sherwood.

Data released by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has revealed the scale of the problem facing councils across the country, with almost one million incidents recorded in England in 2017-18.

In Newark and Sherwood, there were 1,382 fly-tipping incidents in the 12 months to March.

This was an increase of 22% from five years ago, when there were 1,135.

Is a harsher punishment needed to deter fly-tippers?
