Reporting fly-tipping

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste.

Even small-scale fly-tipping could cost you a £1,000 fine.

Report fly-tipping

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 private owner is responsible for these.
