Fly-tipping

Fly-tipping on public land can be reported to Customer Services on 01353 665555 or via our Self Service Portal using the report form below:
 

We will need to know:

  • the date, time and place where you saw the fly-tip
  • a description of what has been tipped, and how much there is
  • any vehicle registration or description (if known)
  • a description of the person/people involved (if witnessed)
  • do you have a photo or video of the event taking place?
  • your contact details (in case our officers have trouble locating the tip)
  • whether or not you would be willing to provide a statement for a prosecution
  • and, do you know of any other witnesses

Remember:

  • do NOT touch the waste - it may cause injury or be a hazardous material.
  • do NOT disturb the site, it is a potential crime scene - there may be evidence that could help to indentify the fly-tippers and lead to a prosecution.
  • do NOT approach anyone you see fly-tipping - protect yourself first and foremost.
Fly-tipping will normally be removed from town centres/shopping streets by the end of the next working day and other areas within 3 working days.
