The Environment Agency is conducting an online survey to gather views on waste crime. Submit your response before 27 February deadline. 

The National Waste Crime survey was established by the EA (Environment Agency) to identify trends and understand the effectiveness of the EA’s approach to eliminating waste crime.

By completing the survey you will be helping the EA to:

  • understand the scale and impact of waste crime
  • design better interventions
  • understand the effectiveness of action taken by the Environment Agency and its partners

 The results of the survey will help the EA combat waste crime and support legitimate businesses.

For the first time, this survey will include small scale fly-tipping (no more than one lorry load of waste). As Defra's annual fly-tipping statistics do not include fly-tips on private land, we strongly encourage our members to respond in order to build a better picture of the impact of fly-tipping on agricultural land.

How to take part

The survey will take no more than 15 minutes to complete. All information provided will be confidential and completely anonymous.

Take part in the survey

The survey will close on 27 February 2023 at 10:00.
