LANDOWNERS have urged Easter visitors to help them catch flytippers.
The Country Land and Business Association has declared war on the growing menace of flytipping and launched a national survey to convince local authorities and Government on the need for action.
They claim clean-up costs in Yorkshire are rocketing as farmers, landowners, residents and visitors report a growing number of incidents.
Dorothy Fairburn, the CLA's regional director, said: "People are fed up with seeing rubbish dumped in ditches, fields, country lanes and even at beauty spots.
"The countryside is vulnerable to flytippers, especially some of the most valued areas nearer to the towns and cities."
Farmers and land- owners have to pick up both the rubbish and the bill for clearing it, she said.
She urged the public to come forward with information.
