Fly-tipping is the illegal disposal of controlled waste. It can vary in scale significantly from a single bin bag of waste to large quantities of waste dumped from trucks.
Fly-tipping is a criminal offence, we can deal with the offence with a fixed penalty Notice, if prosecuted in court it can lead to an unlimited fine and up to five years imprisonment.
The removal of illegally dumped waste or fly-tipped rubbish is a major draw on our resources. Most illegally dumped waste is actually domestic waste put out on the wrong day, offenders have been, are, and will be prosecuted.
