Investigating fly tipping in Hounslow

Closed 20 Mar 2022

Opened 25 Feb 2022


Fly tipping is a problem, not only in Hounslow, but across London and the country as a whole.

In 2021, Hounslow Council received more than 24,000 reports of fly tips across the borough - which cost us more than £1.3m to deal with. We are determined to reduce the amount of fly tipping in order to make our borough cleaner and greener.

We are running this survey to understand why fly-tipping occurs in our borough.

We will be asking several questions on a range of topics including what fly tipping is, what you think about it and your views on the waste disposal process.

Responses will be fully anonymised and all information obtained during the survey will be kept confidential. You can withdraw at any time by closing the browser window or exiting the survey.

This survey is being conducted as part of a project led by Hounslow Council working with Leapwise Advisory.

Why your views matter

Please give us your opinions on fly tipping in the borough using this short survey. Your answers will help us design potential solutions to the issue.

Our consultation will be open until Sunday, 20 March 2022, and we strongly encourage you to share your views.

What happens next

The data collected in this survey will be used for analysis to understand why fly tipping is happening.

The results will help us to design several potential solutions to prevent fly-tipping in the borough.

This will form part of a longer-term, 3–5-year strategy within the Environment and Climate Department, with the aim of delivering sustained and measurable reductions in fly tipping incidents across Hounslow.
