Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. Please read the information below before reporting a fly-tip to us. If you’re looking to get a third-party contractor to remove your waste, please ensure you read the additional information linked at the bottom of the page.


If you discover fly-tipped waste

  • Do not touch the waste - fly-tipped waste can contain dangerous items
  • Visually inspect the waste – what does it consist of? How much is there?
  • Take note of its exact location and whether it is in/ near water
  • Do not disturb the site - there may be evidence that could help identify the culprits and lead to their prosecution
  • Take photos if it is safe to do so – please send these to us at


If you see someone fly-tipping, please tell us

  • The date and time and name of the road
  • How many people were involved and what they looked like
  • What they were doing and what was fly-tipped
  • Any vehicles involved - their make, colour and registration number

Warning: please do not approach anyone fly-tipping.
