Kingston fly tipping “lowest in London”

At last night’s meeting of Full Council, Kingston’s Executive Member for the Environment was asked about the incidence of illegal dumping of waste in the borough.

Cllr Bob Steed replied: “According to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affair’s latest Flycapture database, Kingston has the lowest incidence of fly tipping of the 32 London boroughs.

“In the latest available data, the number of recorded cases in the Royal Borough was 782 over a year, whereas incidents in all other boroughs were in the number of thousands. For some comparison, the outer London Boroughs of Croydon had 6,593 cases and Wandsworth had 176,450 in the same period.”

He added: “I strongly praise the hard work of our Neighbourhood Rangers and the targeting of fly tipping ‘hot spots’ by Street Scene officers, to help keep Liberal Democrat Kingston upon Thames the cleanest, greenest borough in London.”
