CONSTRUCTION waste comes third in a Government list of the most frequently fly-tipped products.
The new figures come from Flycapture, a database set up last year to record the amount of fly-tipping around the UK, which costs local authorities £100 a minute to clean up.
Household rubbish tops the list, followed by white goods such as fridges and freezers.
Under new legislation being planned by the Government anyone caught dumping illegally on a large scale will be slapped with a £50,000 fine.
Environment minister Elliot Morley said: 'The bill will stiffen penalties and extend the powers of local authorities and the Environment Agency.'
Mr Morley added that councils spend £10 million a year clearing black bags of rubbish left at the side of Britain's roads.
