The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has warned of a new trend in waste crime, after two abandoned trailers full of waste appeared in the central belt of Scotland in recent weeks. Similar instances of waste being placed into trailers and abandoned at roadsides and industrial locations have also been reported in England over recent months. Investigations are being undertaken by SEPA to establish the source of the trailers, which could lead to the prosecution of those responsible.
