Flytipping is when rubbish is left dumped in a place by irresponsible offenders rather than being taken to an appropriate place for disposal. The flytipping of controlled waste is a serious criminal offence which carries a fine of up to £20,000 (unlimited if indicted to the Crown Court) or an offender can even be sent to prison. It is important to realise that it is also an offence to permit flytipping.
Flytipping is often associated with dumping waste from vehicles. In this case the person controlling the use of the vehicle can also be prosecuted, which means that it is possible for a prosecution to occur when only the vehicle, not the driver, is identifiable.
The Police have the power to seize vehicles used for flytipping.
We treat this problem very seriously and will prosecute anyone caught flytipping waste.
In an effort to reduce the number of flytipping incidences, the Council provides a Bulky household goods collection service |for large items.
Cleansing & waste team.
