We all love the great British countryside, and spoiling the view is a crime.
Fly-tipping is continuing to be a major problem for farmers across the country and this Easter it is the new focus of the NFU’s Love Your Countryside campaign which launched last year.
Take a look at some of your experiences of fly-tipping.
In England alone during 2012/13 there were 711,000 incidents of fly-tipping with a case occurring every 44 seconds. It’s estimated around two thirds of farmers are affected by fly-tipping. Items that are routinely dumped include old fridges, chairs, mattresses, tyres and contaminated waste, with farmers and landowners then left to pay the clean-up bill. A previous study revealed the cost of clearing fly-tipped waste from agricultural land was around £47m.
