A project has been undertaken by the Environment Agency with a view to tackle waste crime produced potential combined benefits of over £29 million. Waste crime has been in the spotlight this week, with the International Criminal Police Organization – INTERPOL – recognising two international initiatives to tackle environmental crime.


 

The £29 million benefits figure came in an evaluation by the Environment Agency which further found that for each £1 invested, at least £5 worth of potential benefits were identified. 

The government allocated £5 million in 2014 (March) from the Landfill Communities Fund to the Environment Agency to set up the WCIE project. This was then added to an additional £800,000 which was made available to the project by HM Treasury in 2015.
