About us

The National Fly-tipping Prevention Group (NFTPG) is a group of organisations working with a common aim to help prevent and tackle fly-tipping through influencing, advising and raising awareness about the anti social nature and potential health and environmental damage fly-tipping can cause.

What we are aiming for:

  • To gain a better understanding of social behaviours and why people fly-tip. Use the intelligence obtained to influence others away from fly-tipping and use in campaign work.
  • To continue to improve the evidence base for fly-tipping crime through collation and use of data.
  • To improve partnership work in tackling fly-tipping.
  • To influence and make links with Devolved Administrations. Learn, share and promote outputs.
  • To influence and support fly-tipping research projects.
  • To influence the development of Government policy and legislation.
  • To improve communications and publicity - bigger and more timely campaigns, build upon existing events, plan and prioritise which future events programmes would be of value and good vehicles for our messages.
  • To develop the content and promote the NFTPG website as the key source of information for those affected by fly-tipping and a source of best practice for local authorities.
  • To raise the profile of fly-tipping through the legal system.
  • NFTPG Meetings are held every 3 months
  • The meetings are chaired by Defra
  • The Secretariat is provided by Defra
