Report fly tipping

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. Dumped materials can be anything from a single bag of rubbish to large quantities of waste emptied by trucks.

The penalty for fly tipping is a fine of up to £50,000 and/or 12 months imprisonment.

We are responsible for removing illegally dumped waste from public land. The removal of illegally dumped waste from private land is the responsibility of the landowner.
