Do you recognise this rubbish?

We take fly-tipping very seriously - not only does it make a mess of our streets but it is illegal. If you can help identify the people in the CCTV footage or recognise this dumped rubbish from the below images please report it to us by emailing [email protected]

Report it!

Fly-tipping is rubbish dumped illegally onto the street, or on any private or public land.

If fly-tipped waste can be traced back to someone who hasn’t taken appropriate steps to ensure they gave their waste to a person who is licensed, they could receive an on the spot fine or face prosecution.

It can also be issued to an unauthorised carrier who is found to be disposing of household waste as well as if a person who gives their rubbish to an unauthorised person at a site that does not have a permit. 

You can check if someone is authorised with your local Environment Agency office on 03708 506 506 or you can check online.

If you have extra rubbish that won't go into one of your collection bins, you can take it to one of our household waste recycling centres (tidy tips) or you can arrange for a bulky waste collection.

If you spot dumped rubbish let us know by emailing [email protected] with the date, time and place of the occurrence; what the waste looks like and how much of it there is; a description of any vehicles involved and the vehicle registration number, and a description of the people fly-tipping.
