Fly-tipping is on the rise, with vacant sites being prime targets

The number of incidents has increased for the third year in a row.

Many asset owners will already be aware of the devastating effects that vandalism and arson can have on a business, as it is expensive and time-consuming to deal with these. Deterring such crimes is difficult, however, as most vandalism, including graffiti and arson, occurs at night and on weekends when sites or properties are vacant. Fly-tipping is also on the rise, with vacant sites being prime targets. The number of incidents has increased for the third year in a row: councils across England and Wales reported 936,090 cases in 2015–16, up 4% on the previous year.
