Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of items.
It can be as small as a single bag, to an entire truck load of rubbish.
If you witness serious fly-tipping in progress, please ring the Police on 999 and give as much information as possible. Do not put yourself at risk. Stay out of the way and don't confront the perpetrators.
Please note the council is not responsible for clearing waste fly-tipped on private land or property.
Reporting a fly-tip
To report a fly-tip we will need to know the following information:
- Your name, address, email, telephone number
- Description of the rubbish/items
- Street location
- Images or documents*
*These are not required but will help us identify the fly-tip.
What happens next
You will receive an acknowledgement from our Contact Centre.
The information submitted will be reviewed by our contractor. The details will be passed to the Cleansing team for clearance and, if appropriate, to our Enforcement team for further investigation.
