  • They reduce our carbon footprint
  • They have a diverse workforce
  • They provide a safe place to work

This report will cover quarter one reporting period for 2018 to 2019.

Section 5 of the report highlights how they reduce the number of high risk illegal waste sites. It states that during quarter one the EA stopped more high risk sites, and found less, compared to quarter one 2017/18. That is they stopped 53 and found 23 in quarter one 2018/19 compared to stopping 23 and finding 27 in quarter one 2017/18. Over the past 4 quarters the number of active high risk sites has decreased steadily from 280 to 255. Nationally the EA are amber against the quarter one target of 254 high risk sites. Against their local targets, 10 Areas are green and 4 are red.

It also points out that ‘It remains a priority to reduce the impact of illegal waste activity on the environment, on local communities and to ensure a level playing field for businesses. Over the coming months Areas will receive additional resource through recruitment to the extra posts funded by the £30m for waste crime. The quarterly targets for this KPI have been profiled to account for that injection of resource so become more challenging as the year progresses.’
