Fly-tipping

Dumping waste is illegal and can be reported to the Council

Fly-tipping is the dumping of rubbish illegally. If the rubbish can be removed with one person and a litter picker then this is not classed as fly tipping. Please see the litter information.

If the waste is hazardous, please call 01254 585921 to speak to us directly. 

The Council cannot remove fly tipping that has been dumped on privately maintained land, however we can investigate this to try and identify the offender.

You can report fly tipping online, however if further action is required then we may need to contact you to discuss the offence further. 

On conviction, those found guilty can face an unlimited fine, or six months imprisonment or both.

Report fly tipping

You can report an abandoned bin on a street or in a back alley.
