Waste Criminals Beware

Waste Criminals Beware

Trained officers from the Environment Agency continue to mark waste bales as part of their ongoing Waste Crime Prevention strategy.

The Agency has been using SelectaDNA Spray to tackle flytippers and those that commit waste crime in areas such as Kettering and Telford.

Gill Clayton, from the Environment Agency’s Disruption and Prevention Team said: “Criminals beware! Illegal dumping not only blights local communities but also harms the environment and undermines legitimate businesses. We are using SelectaDNA spray to forensically mark bales which contain waste at various sites. If marked items turn up elsewhere they are immediately traceable and this allows us to evidence the movement of this waste and find those responsible.”
