Information on how to report dumped rubbish within a residential or business premises or on public and private land.
Rubbish on any land (public or private)
Fly-tipping is the illegal act of dumping rubbish anywhere, on any land, with no intention of having it cleared.
Common fly-tipped items include furniture and household appliances, building rubble, carpeting, shopping trolleys, hazardous waste and any other items of refuse. A fly-tip can also be any refuse bag, bulky or loose material that has been dumped in a public space or left on land without the landowner's permission.
A Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) with a fine of £400 is issued for offences of fly-tipping.
We collect rubbish on council land, including roads, pavements, public car parks, green spaces and council housing estates.
We do not collect rubbish in natural watercourses or rivers. This is dealt with by the Environment Agency.
