The aim of this pilot grant scheme is to trial approaches and interventions to prevent or address the issue of fly-tipping.
The scheme delivered by WRAP on behalf of Defra will provide capital funding for projects at known fly-tipping hot-spots that show the potential for improving infrastructure, raising awareness, and supporting enforcement activity. The pilots will trial approaches, with a particular interest given to projects that can influence long term behaviour change and provide key learnings on methods used for reduction of fly-tipping that can be shared with the wider sector and that can be easily replicated or scaled up.
The scheme has a finite budget of £450,000 for grant awards between £25,000 and £50,000. The scheme is open to Local Authorities based in England only, that are currently leading on the issue of fly- tipping or are already known from information obtained by Defra & WRAP to have a significant fly-tipping issue.
