Hammersmith and Fulham cut fly-tipping by almost one-third last year, the biggest reduction in London, according to government figures published last week.

The borough cut fly-tipping by 32.6%, ahead of Newham at 32.4%.

H&F Council Leader Stephen Cowan welcomed the news saying: ‘‘Making our streets cleaner and more beautiful is central to everything we do. That’s why we have taken a wide range of actions to stop fly-tipping which is why we’re getting such excellent results. We will always be vigilant as we strive to make Hammersmith & Fulham the best place to live and work in London.”

The data shows 20,032 incidents of flytipping were issued in 2021-22, with 1,454 fixed penalty notices (FPNs) issued.

The following year, 2022-23, H&F cut this number to 13,504 incidents, while almost doubling the number of FPNs to 2,863.

It’s the result of H&F’s extensive CCTV network – the densest anywhere in the country – backed by daily patrols carried out by H&F’s Law Enforcement Team.
