Fly-tipping

Fly-tipping can be anything from a sack of rubbish to a dumped shopping trolley or mattress.

If you have noticed rubbish you believe has been fly-tipped, start by speaking to your neighbours to find out if it belongs to them and they have already made arrangements to clear (perhaps the rubbish is outside waiting to be collected the next day).

If you have made enquiries and no-one knows, you can take the following action:

  • If the rubbish is on our land, please report it to us - attaching a photo if possible. Once we receive your report we will arrange to have it removed. This can take up to four weeks but is usually quicker.
  • If the rubbish is not on our land, you will need to contact your local council, who will arrange for it to be removed.
