Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste, find out more on our fly-tipping webpages.

Fly-tipping on public land can be reported to Customer Services on 01353 665555 or via our Self Service Portal using the online form below:

We will need to know: 

  • the date, time and place where you saw the fly-tip  
  • a description of what has been tipped, and how much there is 
  • any vehicle registration or description (if known) 
  • a description of the person/people involved (if witnessed) 
  • do you have a photo or video of the event taking place? 
  • your contact details (in case our officers have trouble locating the tip) 
  • whether or not you would be willing to provide a statement for a prosecution 
  • and, do you know of any other witnesses? 


  • do NOT touch the waste - it may cause injury or be a hazardous material 
  • do NOT disturb the site, it is a potential crime scene - there may be evidence that could help to identify the fly-tippers and lead to a prosecution 
  • do NOT approach anyone you see fly-tipping - protect yourself first and foremost 

Fly-tipping will normally be removed from town centres/shopping streets by the end of the next working day and other areas within three working days.
