Vehicles suspected of waste crime

Overview

We have the power to seize a vehicle, trailer or mobile plant and their contents if we believe it is being used for – or will be used for – waste crimes such as fly-tipping.

When we can seize a vehicle

We will seize a vehicle if it has been:

  • used to dump waste illegally – fly-tipping

  • used to transfer waste to someone not registered as a waste carrier
