Fly tipping frustrates us just as much as you and costs us money to deal with - more than £140 per tonne. We want our streets to be clean and pleasant places and we’re determined to catch those responsible for dumping rubbish illegally.
Our officers are constantly patrolling the borough and aim to investigate and remove any dumped waste within four days at the most.
We're also running a trial to decrease fly tipping, by using portable cameras to catch offenders.
We need your help to catch the offenders!
Our enforcement officers rely on residents to provide any information regarding those responsible for fly tipping so we can prosecute. If we can identify the offender, financial penalties will be issued and if necessary, our officers will refer more serious issues for prosecution via the local magistrates’ court.
If you have any information regarding fly tippers, if you witnessed the fly tipping yourself or if you have any evidence that could help us catch those responsible, let us know using the reporting form and provide as much information as possible.
Become a street champion and get your neighbours involved too.
