If possible make a note of
- The date, time and place of occurrence.
- The vehicle type, colour and registration.
- A brief description of the person flytipping.
Report the flytipping incident to the council even if you were not able to take these details.
Some flytippers may become violent. You should not approach them. Only approach the site when you are sure it is safe to do so. Some waste is hazardous. Do not touch anything.
Flytipping is illegal. Individuals can now be fined on the spot - £110 just for putting their black bin bag out on the wrong day and the maximum fine for serious flytipping has increased to £50,000.
