Flycapture, the national fly-tipping database, records the number of incidents of fly-tipping in which household waste is the predominate waste type. It does not record whether it is householders, businesses or illegal waste operators that actually fly-tip the waste.
The following table lists the percentage of fly-tips classified as household waste since Flycapture was introduced:
Flycapture year Percentage of household waste 2004-05 55.4 2005-06 76.7 2006-07 77.0

2004-05 was the first year of the Flycapture database with 174 (49 per cent.) of local authorities submitting the required 12 monthly returns. This rose to 313 (88 per cent.) in 2005-06 and 323 (91 per cent.) in 2006-07.
