Fly-tipping

Report fly tipping

Fly-tipping is illegally dumping waste anywhere other than a licensed tip.

Even small-scale fly-tipping could cost you a £400 fine.

You should tell us if you see someone fly-tipping. It is important for you to tell us:

  • the time
  • the place
  • the vehicle registration number
  • the make and model of the vehicle, if you can't get the registration number
  • any identifying marks or writing on their vehicle
  • what the alleged fly-tippers look like
  • the type of waste

We don't clear fly-tipping from private land, private alleyways or private access roads – the owner is responsible for these.

Simply login to our My Account services, then select 'Environmental reporting', 'Add a report' and choose 'Fly tipping' from the category list. You can create an account if you don't already have one.
