Consultation description

We would like to know more about the threat and effects of serious and organised crime in the waste sector. We would also like to understand how organisations, such as the Environment Agency, police, local authorities and NCA, respond to the threat.

This includes:

  • what types of crimes are being committed
  • who are committing these crimes
  • examples of environmental, community and economic effects
  • views on how organisations respond to these crimes
  • how do you think we can improve prevention and enforcement

The evidence gathered will be used to inform the serious and organised crime in waste sector review.
