    This is standard procedure in the UK. There are a wide range of actions that are now classified as environmental crimes.
    See: https://www.met.police.uk/advice/advice-and-information/ec/environment-crime/
    Some are rather trivial e.g. littering, which get on-the-spot fines if caught in the act.
    But some are serious pollution or dumping which can block miles of remote roads.
    To some extent local councils have brought this on themselves as they increase charges for disposal of commercial waste and are then surprised when some people save money by illegal dumping.
