    Milton Keynes Council has taken to social media to remind residents that they "won’t stand for environmental crime such as fly-tipping or abandoned vehicles".

    Last month, Milton Keynes Council's Environmental Crime Unit dealt with 400 reports.

    It has been a hot topic over the past year and figures show that residents were reporting fly-tipped rubbish 20 times per day during March 2021.

    But as the year goes on, there seems to be no sign of reports slowing down.

    The Council's Environmental Crime Unit also dealt with 81 abandoned cars, investigated 340 environmental crimes and processed two case files for prosecution.

    Back in May, The Parks Trust pleaded for members of the public to report incidents of fly-tipping in local green spaces.

    They estimated that over the last year it has cost them £350,000 to deal with the increasing incidents of removing fly-tipping and littering in local green spaces.

    In June, it was also announced that more CCTV and designated officer will be introduced to tackle fly-tipping in Milton Keynes.
