Don't get dumped on ...it will cost you. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is ..

Don’t become a victim...
There are teams of criminals that operate in your area who will offer you cash to store waste on your land. They promise to come back and remove
it but won’t and you’ll be left with waste that may contaminate your land.  What’s more, you’ll probably have to pay to have it lawfully removed.

Don’t become a criminal...
You may be committing an offence by allowing waste to be stored on your land without the relevant permissions which could leave YOU liable
to prosecution.

Do tell us...
If you are approached to store waste for someone else, or suspect that this is going on in your area, let us know immediately by calling
Environment Agency incident hotline: 0800 80 70 60 or Crimestoppers: 0800 555111

Waste crime is a serious offence with tough penalties. It can damage the environment and blight communities. The Environment Agency is
cracking down on waste crime and taking tough action to deal with criminal behaviour.
