Information is Power
This technology is combined with ANPR to detect the licence plates of perpetrators, giving data, evidence and power back to communities to combat the issue and enforce policies through a fining process. By using the licence plate data along with the visual verification from the system, you can identify the individual or organisation responsible for the dumping and issue fines through the DVLA system to act as a future deterrent to fly-tipping.
Deployment Options For WasteWatch Cam
Rapid Deployment Towers
WasteWatch can operate on a rapid deployment tower for fast responses. This allows the system to run in rural areas without access to mains power. Furthermore, power options such as solar or wind can help extent the systems operation time without battery replacement or recharging.
Enhance Existing CCTV
WasteWatch can also be added to existing CCTV infrastructure. There may be a need for some additional technology to be added however, were possible we will attempt to deliver the solution through existing CCTV infrastructure, reducing the need for any major hardware investment.

Where is WasteWatch Cam is Used?
Overflow at Recycling Points
Fly-tipping is a serious environmental problem that affects many recycling points in the UK. According to the latest government statistics, there were 1.13 million fly-tipping incidents in England in 2020/21, an increase of 16% from the previous year1. Many people who want to dispose of their waste responsibly find that the recycling bins are full or overflowing, and they end up adding to the pile or dumping their waste elsewhere. This is not only illegal, but also harmful to the environment and the community.
Supporting Local Councils
Councils often face challenges in enforcing policies against fly-tipping or littering due to insufficient information. WasteWatch is a system that collects all the relevant data in one place, making it easier to issue fines and deter future offenders. It also generates income to support the costs of cleaning up the environment.
Littering On Highways
WasteWatch can be placed near the entry and exit ramps of Motorways, here the solution can monitor if vehicle exiting or entering the motorway are throwing their waste from their vehicles and on to the motorway. WasteWatch can automatically detect when this occurs and can identify from which vehicle it has come from, you will then have the DVLA information of that vehicle for the issuing of fines.
Identify Criminal Organisations
Fly-tipping is a serious environmental problem that is often linked to organised crime. Criminal gangs set up fake companies to collect waste from unsuspecting clients and then dump it illegally on land or water, avoiding disposal costs and taxes. The government and the Environment Agency are trying to crack down on these offenders, but they face challenges in gathering evidence and prosecuting them. This is where WasteWatch can support identifying these organsiations.
Car parks are common areas of litter and waste build-up. Whether they belong to supermarkets, high streets, shopping centres or food venues, car parks often witness waste being thrown from vehicles or placed under them before driving away. This results in a pile of waste that private businesses or the council have to clean up at the expense of the taxpayers. WasteWatch is a system that can be quickly deployed to car park zones to monitor and detect littering behaviour, and help enforce fines and penalties for the offenders.
