Illegal fly tipping

  • Fly-tipping, fly dumping or illegal dumping refers to dumping waste illegally instead of using an authorised method such as a kerbside collection or using an authorised refuse centre 

Removal of fly tipping

  • The council will investigate cases of fly tipping and act on the findings as appropriate.
  • the council can only remove fly tipping which is found on public land and is not privately owned land
  • Fly tipping found on private premises is the responsibility of the owner and so some cases may take longer to rectify than others
  • The council can arrange the removal of waste from private land at a cost to the owner

How to avoid your waste being flytipped


  • Businesses must follow their duty of care and use other authorised methods of disposal – guidance can be found at GOV.UK
