How to report illegally dumped rubbish

We are responsible for investigating reports of fly-tipping (rubbish dumped illegally) on public land, and arranging for its removal. 

If the rubbish is dumped on private land, the landowner is responsible for removing it.

Anyone caught fly-tipping could be liable for prosecution.  If found guilty, punishments could include fines of up to £50,000, or five years' imprisonment.
If you find something at the scene that might show who was responsible, please don't remove it. Report it - one of our Waste Officers will investigate and collect the evidence.

You can report fly-tipping online, or by contacting Customer Services.
