Landowner duty of care
Penalties for fly tipping will apply if you allow someone to fly tip on your land.
You must ensure that your land is as secure as is possible to prevent fly tipping. You can do this by:
- physical improvements such as the installation of gates and barriers and improved visibility
- better site management- keeping areas tidy and removing fly-tipped waste quickly
- deterrence- this can be in the form of successful prosecutions, signage, CCTV, security patrols
- working with others, including your neighbours, local businesses and any existing partnerships
