Title: Round-up of National and Regional media coverage of the Landfill Tax introduction and Flytipping crack down
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This document describes issues related to the Landfill Tax on 1 October 1996. It is made up of press clippings regarding to this matter. In the lead-up to the introduction of the Landfill Tax on 1 October 1996, concerns were being publicly expressed, particularly by landowners and local authorities, that the increased cost of using landfill sites would lead to an increase in fly-tipping and illegal dumping. To respond to these concerns the press office developed, in liaison with the waste regulation function, a PR strategy with the following aims: To help contain any increase in fly-tipping after the landfill tax was introduced; to improve the quality and quantity of information on fly-tippers supplied to the Agency; to help the Agency improve co-operation with the police, local authorities and the legitimate waste industry; to raise the profile of the Agency's role and work in relation to waste.
