Fly tipping

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish or waste instead of taking it to an authorised tip or using the wheelie bins provided by local councils.

As well as looking a mess it can be dangerous depending on what has been dumped. Never try to clear up fly tipped waste yourself as you won't know if it contains hazardous material. 

If you see someone fly tipping, try to make a note of their vehicle registration if possible. A description of the offenders will help as well. But never approach them. Instead, call us on 999 (only if a crime is in progress). 

If you come across fly tipped rubbish, you can report it to your local council. The links below take you directly to the relevant section of their websites:
