Flytipping is the illegal dumping of waste and fines of up to £50,000 in Magistrates’ Courts can be given or unlimited amounts in Higher Courts and prison sentences of up to five years.
Flytipping can cause pollution and harm the environment, human health, animals and wildlife. It is also expensive to clear up and is an ongoing problem to landowners and farmers. We work with landowners to identify offenders and will prosecute where appropriate.
We offer a reward of up to £500 for information which leads to a successful prosecution in cases of flytipping.
We deal promptly with flytipped material on our land or highways and provide advice to landowners affected by flytipping.
