Oceans of waste: French citizens take action to identify fly-tipping culprits • FRANCE 24 English

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Oceans of waste: French citizens take action to identify fly-tipping culprits • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.

In 2020, over a million tonnes of waste were illegally dumped in the French countryside. Fly-tipping is an ever-growing problem in France, as dishonest businesses try to reduce costs by throwing construction waste into illegal rubbish dumps, sometimes even in protected sites. In the absence of an environmental police, citizens are taking action, searching the trash for clues in the hope of identifying the culprits. This report takes us to two locations in the Paris suburbs where fly-tipping has become an urgent environmental issue. Our France 2 colleagues report, with France 24’s Camille Nedelec.
