The number of Illegal Waste Sites involving End of Life Vehicles / Vehicle Parts where the EA has stopped illegal activity was 118 at the end of 2019/2020. The number of sites stopped involving tyres was 23 in the same period.

And the latest figure for the number of new illegal waste sites involving ELVs /vehicle parts was 109, lower than the previous figure of 147 recorded between 2017 and 2018.

By way of a definition, the EA says:

“Illegal waste sites operate without a permit, are organised and involve multiple loads of waste being treated, stored or disposed. The activities may be known to the landowner or occupier and run as a business.

“Permit breaches and fly-tipping are not illegal waste sites, however, exempt sites operating outside their conditions and permitted sites operating outside of their permitted boundary are illegal waste sites.”
