What is flytipping?
It is the illegal disposal of waste on council land. We will prosecute anyone caught flytipping waste.
How to report it
- do not touch flytipped waste as it could be hazardous
- if possible, try to have a look at the waste and see what it consists of and how much there is
- note the exact location and whether it is near to, or in, water
- do not disturb the site as there may be evidence there that we can use to catch the culprits
If you see someone flytipping, make a note of the day, date and time you saw the incident try to include the registration number of the vehicle.
What happens next?
If we can, we will remove fly tips on the highway or on council owned land as part of the scheduled street cleaning programme. Most areas receive a clean every 3 weeks.
