Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. It can be anything from domestic items such as fridges, sofas and mattresses to garden waste, tyres and construction waste. Fly tipping is irresponsible, detrimental to our local environment and can carry a fine of up to £50,000 and/or six months imprisonment.
If you are paying for someone to remove and dispose of your waste, you are still responsible! Please make sure you use a reputable company that has a waste carriers licence. You can check the Environment Agency's register of licenced carriers here.
