Fly tipping

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of items.

Please don't hesitate to report fly tipping. Fly tipping is an illegal activity. If you see it in action, call the police on 999 and report it as a crime in progress. Alternatively if you have just discovered it, report to the council.

Every householder, business and landowner is responsible for the proper removal of waste from their property. This includes waste removed by any trader, contractor or someone you’ve found on Facebook on your behalf. If you're having work done in your home, office or garden you should budget for responsible waste disposal, and check that your contractor is a registered waste carrier and will dispose of the waste properly.

Everyone has a legal 'duty of care' to ensure your household or business waste is disposed of correctly. You can be prosecuted even if your waste is fly tipped by someone else on your behalf.
