Fly tipping

Fly-tipping is the dumping of rubbish illegally. If the rubbish can be removed with one person and a litter picker 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 producer. 

It is not essential to provide an official statement when reporting fly-tipping but a statement is very useful when prosecuting. 

On conviction the fine is up to £50,000 or six months imprisonment or both.
