Yorkshire and the Humber is the third worst region in the country for fly-tipping, according to research by the BBC.
There were more than 28,000 incidents of fly-tipping between 2012 and 2019, research from the BBC Shared Data Unit found.
The clean up comes at a cost of nearly £2.5m with incidents rising since 2012.
In 2018-2019, there were more than 5,500 incidents of fly-tipping, according to the data, with Leeds being the worst place in Yorkshire and the Humber.
The rise of large fly-tipping incidents across England is being blamed on organised gangs, with fake companies hiring out buildings to dump waste.
