Fly tipping

Information on appropriate waste disposal and how to report fly tipping incidents.

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste and is considered a crime. 

Fly tipping is dangerous, damages the environment and costs a huge amount of money to clean up each year. 

Abandoned rubbish can lead to increased rodent activity, the perception of increased crime levels, and overall safety concerns. It also encourages others to dump their rubbish there.
