Flytipping is the illegal disposal of waste on council land. We treat flytipping very seriously and will prosecute anyone caught flytipping waste.

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO MAKE A PUBLIC SPACES PROTECTION ORDER FOR ALDERS LANE.

Have your say on a proposed Public Spaces Protection Order for Alders Lane, Tonge with The Haulgh. We want to install a barrier across the lane to try and prevent fly tipping and anti-social behaviour.

Please follow the guidance below for advice on how to deal with fly tipped land:

  • Do not touch the waste. Fly tipped waste can be dangerous as it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances
  • Try to visually inspect the waste. If possible, you should look to see what the waste consists of and how much there is
  • Take note of its exact location and whether it is near to, or in, water
  • Do not disturb the site. There may be evidence that could help identify the culprits and lead to their prosecution

If you see someone fly tipping, you should make a note of the day, date and time you saw the incident. You should also try and get a description of any vehicles involved, including the registration number if possible. Never approach the fly tippers, as you may be at risk if you do so.

Our service standards

Where practical we will remove fly tips on the highway or council owned land as part the scheduled street cleaning programme. Many areas receive a clean every 3 weeks but should the location of the fly tip fall outside these areas then we will aim to remove the fly tip inside 3 weeks.
