Flytipping Increase in Brent

The Evening Standard recently published a piece on flytipping, which appears to be increasing across the country.  Brent is cited as having the worst increase, at 84%, although it is still not as bad as several other London Boroughs.

I suggested when Brent adopted its new Public Realm Contract that it would need careful monitoring.  The new contract had a number of imaginative ways to improve waste and street cleaning services whilst lowering costs.  However, effective monitoring was essential.  I suspect Brent's recent decision to abolish its Environment Department was not an aid to more effective monitoring.  Brent Council needs to work out how it is going to effectively respond to whatever it is that is causing the increase in flytipping.
