Strategically placed CCTV cameras keep a watch on popular fly-tipping sites to reduce rates on fly-tipping.
Campaign Name:Effective CCTV (Barnet)
Delivered By:London Borough of Barnet
Main Objective:Enforcement (fines and penalties)
Cost:£0 - 250
Several arterial roads run through Barnet. This means that a large number of waste carriers often pass through the area. Not far from where these roads intersect there is a large industrial area which is prone to fly-tipping. To tackle this issue a number of surveillance operations were tested, and tipping ceased as a result.
Following the test, a CCTV camera was installed to keep watch more permanently. The CCTV camera transmitted images directly to a control centre, allowing the council to catch tippers in the act.
Barnet report that large-scale tipping in the area has reduced dramatically.
"Increased emphasis on partnership working has also had a significant impact on fly-tipping levels in the borough. Barnet works with the police, Environment Agency, HM Revenue & Customs and the Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to conduct multi-agency swoops on fly-tipping hotspots such as Staples Corner in West Hendon and Scratch Wood service station in Edgware."
