Garbage worth USD 1.20 billion

More than 900,000 cases of illegal dumping of waste have been reported recently in Great Britain, notably in Essex County. In order to avoid paying the landfill tax, London criminal groups would dump waste across the English countryside, saving their “customers” nearly 1.2 billion dollars, according to The Times. Unless digging moats and erecting walls similar to those of a fortress, it would be impossible to prevent these lorries from dumping garbage, said local agricultural unions.
