Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish in a public space, or leaving it on land without the owner’s permission.
We’ve made it easy for you to report a fly-tip.
We aim to resolve Fly-tipping issues within two working days.
In special circumstances this may take longer to resolve, for example if it is on private land and access is required.
Fly-tipping on private land
Clearing fly-tipping from private land is the responsibility of the landowner.
If you need our help, we will charge you for the service.
If you are responsible for land or are a private landowner, you must ensure that your land is as secure as is practically possible.
Residents are advised that giving your waste to someone else could result in a penalty/fine if that company or person doesn’t have a licence to carry waste.
A fly-tip may include:
- Any refuse bag
- Bulky or loose material
- Household accessories (ie fridges, freezers, cookers, washing machines)
- Building rubble
If you have evidence that waste has been fly-tipped and are willing to support the Council in prosecuting the offenders (i.e. willing to attend Court), you can provide this information on the report form.
