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.

Anyone who removes rubbish from your property must be registered to do so – you can check if a waste carrier is registered online.

When waste is passed from one person to another, a written description of that waste and details of the transfer must be made. Make sure you get a copy to show you have acted correctly. Contact the Environment Agency on 03708 506 506 and ask for a Waste Carrier Validation Check.

Do not give your waste to anyone not registered. If it is later found flytipped you will have committed an offence.

We have a responsibility to clear flytipped waste from our public areas and to locate and prosecute the offenders. We remove the waste as quickly as possible.

Waste dumped on private land is the responsibility of the landowner and in certain circumstances the landowner can be made to clear away the rubbish.

Illegal waste sites that store or burn waste should be reported to the Environment Agency on their incident hotline 03708 506 506.
