We treat fly-tipping very seriously and will look to prosecute anyone caught fly-tipping waste.
Fly-tipping carries a fine of up to £50,000 (unlimited if taken through the Crown Court) or an offender can be sent to prison or have their vehicle seized.
What to do if you discover fly-tipped waste
Please help us combat fly-tipping by reporting any fly-tipping in your area today. Any information you can obtain about who has fly-tipped the waste would be very helpful to our Community Wardens.
Information such as:
- vehicle registration
- brief description of the vehicle/s seen fly-tipping
- brief description of the person/people seen fly-tipping
- photographic evidence if possible of the above
NEVER touch the waste: fly-tipped waste can be dangerous - it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
NEVER disturb the site - there may be evidence that could help identify the fly-tippers and lead to their prosecution
NEVER approach anyone you see fly tipping – they could become violent
Remember - Don't Put Yourself At Risk!
