Have your say in EA’s National Waste Crime Survey

Environment Agency (EA) establish Biennial National Waste Crime Survey

 

Have your say in EA’s National Waste Crime Survey f

The biennial National Waste Crime Survey, conducted by SYSTRA, an independent market research company, on behalf of the Environment Agency is established to inform the continual development of its intelligence-led approach to stop crime impacting the waste industry, the environment and communities.

First run last year, the survey aims to collect insight from those affected by waste crime to build a robust baseline of data that will increase understanding of the impacts of waste crime; quantify the scale of each waste crime type across England and assess which interventions used by the Environment Agency and its partners are the most effective.

With almost half of last years’ respondents saying waste crime had impacted their industry sector or their clients, there has never been a more important time to help the Environment Agency stop these criminals from continuing to infiltrate our legitimate businesses, damage our environment and cause distress to our communities.

The survey has been commissioned by Malcolm Lythgo, Head of Waste at the Environment Agency, and is supported by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), Environmental Services Association (ESA), the United Resource Operators Consortium (UROC) and the National Farmers Union (NFU).

Have you observed or been affected by waste crime? The Agency would like to hear from you and invites responses from the legitimate waste industry, landowners and farmers, environmental consultants, insurance companies and local authorities.

The survey is open for responses from Monday 1st March until Friday 19 March: systraltd.researchfeedback.net/s/nwcs2021_partners
