Fly-tipping is a crime

Fly tipping can make an area look -

  • ugly
  • uncared for
  • pose a risk to health and the local environment

We treat fly-tipping very seriously.

Instances of fly-tipping are always investigated. We want to find evidence to help identify and locate those responsible for this activity. Then enforcement action taken.

To tackle fly-tipping, we may use CCTV in locations to identify offenders. Decisions about the deployment of mobile CCTV is taken in response to service requests and operational data. It is not done in response to individual requests. If we get evidence, we will seek to identify and locate those responsible for this activity. We will take enforcement action.

If you pay someone to remove your waste and it is found fly-tipped you can be fined and get a criminal record.

If you pay someone to remove your waste, make sure they are authorised by the Environment Agency to do so. If they are not authorised, they are an illegal waste carrier.
