How to report fly-tipping or littering

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. Fly-tipped waste can be found anywhere, ranging from places such as pavements, car parks, next to waste bins and lay-bys, to private land. A whole range of waste types can be fly-tipped ranging from a single bag of rubbish or furniture, to large volumes of construction and demolition debris and hazardous waste rubbish dumped from vehicles.

  • How do I report litter?

    • If you wish to report significant street littering or the need for street cleaning then:
       
      • Note the amount and type of litter, where it has been left and the frequency (if appropriate) and contact us.
    • In some cases, such as cigarette butts outside a corporate building it may be appropriate to report the litter to the firm or organisation in question.
  • What do I do if I discover fly-tipped rubbish?

    • Please note the following:
       
      • Please do not touch the waste: fly tipped waste can be dangerous - it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
      • If possible, please visually inspect the waste and try to determine what the waste consists of and how much there is.
      • Please note its exact location.
      • Please do not disturb the site as there may be evidence that could help identify the offenders and lead to their prosecution
    • If someone has fly-tipped waste then a crime is likely to have been committed and you or the landowner should follow the steps above and then report the matter to the Police (using the online form or by phoning 725111). If the fly-tipped rubbish is on the road, a pavement, or a car park needing a parking clock then please contact us. If it is in a coastal car park please contact Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services
    • If the fly-tipping is on your land, unfortunately, this anti-social behaviour leaves you with the responsibility for disposing of the waste as it has been tipped. However, if the perpetrator is caught you may be able to recover this cost.
  • What do I do if I see somebody fly-tipping?

    • If you see someone fly-tipping you should report the matter to the Police (using the online form or by phoning 725111):
       
      • Report the day, date and time you saw the incident.
      • What you saw i.e. how many people were fly tipping, what did they fly-tip and where, what they looked like.
      • Any vehicles involved - their make, colour and registration number.
  • How do I report fly-tipping?

    • In order to report fly-tipping you should contact the landowner of the property it has been dumped on.
