Fly-tipping has increased across south Bucks since 2015 - with councils across the UK spending more than £4.5 million cleaning up the South East in just 12 months. 

Wycombe District Council spent £64,848 clearing dumped rubbish since 2015, with incidents increasing from 777 in 2015/16 to 860 in 2016/17. 

Chiltern spent £29,478 on fly-tipping, with incidents up from 339 in 2015/16 to 400 in the last financial year. 

In South Bucks, fly-tipping went up from 549 in 2015/16 to 566 in the same period, seeing them shell out £28,573 on the clear-up. 

Newly-released figures from the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) revealed that more than one million incidents of fly-tipping were dealt with by councils in England in 2016-17, costing taxpayers nationally £58m to clear up.

The DEFRA figures only account for flytipping incidents on council land, not private land.
