What is fly-tipping?
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of any waste or rubbish (greater than a single sack) anywhere other than at a licenced tip.
Why is fly-tipping a problem?
Fly-tipping is dangerous and potentially harmful, while also spoiling our environment, attracting arson and further fly-tipping. As council tax payers, cleaning it up costs us all money.
Will we remove all fly-tipping?
We only remove waste from public land or highways. Waste on private land is the responsibility of the landowner to clear and dispose of.

I have witnessed someone fly-tipping waste - what can I do?
Click on the green button on this page, or phone 0345 678 9006. We will require dates, times and locations, a description of the person dumping waste, their vehicle (registration number, colour, make, model), and whether the person was approached. With sufficient information, we can write the person a warning letter, or bring them in for questioning under caution. We can investigate all fly-tipping on both public and private land, with the landowner's consent.
