Fly-tipping clean-up costs £2.1m in Wales

Fly-tipping cost about £2.1m to clean-up last year, latest figures show.

There were 36,259 incidents of rubbish dumped illegally in 2015-16, up 14% (4,546 extra cases) on the year before.

However, fly-tipping has fallen in Wales from a peak of 61,995 incidents in 2007-08 to around 31,700 in 2014-15.
