What you should do if you come across fly tipping or abandoned vehicles and how to report it. Pay a fixed penalty fine or report an untaxed vehicle.
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. In simple terms it can vary from a single bag of waste upwards to thousands of tonnes of construction and demolition waste.
Fly-tipping can be unsightly. It can pose a significant threat to people, wildlife, the environment and the local economy.
It also undermines legitimate waste businesses where unscrupulous operators undercut those operating within the law.
Fly-tipping costs us tens of thousands of pounds to clear up every year. We actively investigate instances of fly-tipping to find evidence of who dumped the waste and who it originally belonged to, and then take legal action.
