Littering and fly-tipping statistics for Haringey council 2015/2016 & 2016/2017

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Haringey Borough Council,

I am struggling with the high levels of littering and fly-tipping in the borough, particularly in the area between Bruce Grove and Seven Sisters where I live. I have become aware of similar issues in other parts of the borough through comments on social media.

I wondered if you could please provide the following information?

1. How many fly-tipping problems have been reported during the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016 (with a breakdown of their location if possible)?
2. What has been the total expenditure of clearing these fly-tipping spots during the current financial year (2016-2017) and during the 2015-2016 period?
3. How many of these fly-tipping problems (refer to point 1 of this request) have resulted in a fine being issued, and/or the perpetrator(s) being identified and/or prosecuted?
4. How many fines for littering have been issued in the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016, with location if possible?
5. How many fines for fly-tipping have been issued in the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016, with location if possible?
6. The total revenue raised in the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016 as a result of the fines mentioned in points 5 and 6 of this request, and how has this money been used?
7. In addition to fines, what specific measures have been implemented in the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016 to deter fly-tipping spots, with details of whether they have been successful or not?
8. In addition to fines, what specific measures have been implemented in the financial years 2016-2017 and 2015-2016 to deter general littering (not only that originating from businesses, but also from regular passers-by)?

Thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Jose Marcano
