Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste on land, often seen in lay-bys, country lanes, fields or woodland.
If you use a private contractor to remove household, garden or construction waste make sure that any waste produced on the property is only taken away by someone who is a registered waste carrier.
Don't approach anyone or put yourself in danger if you see fly-tipping, it is more important to report the incident.
When reporting fly-tipping, try to get as much information as you can, such as:
- vehicle details
- descriptions of people involved
- photographs (only if you can take them safely)
You can report fly-typping incident online or by phone.
