We are responsible for investigating incidents of fly tipping and where appropriate, remove and dispose of illegally dumped rubbish from footpaths, highways, pedestrian areas and other areas of council-owned land.
Fly tipping is an arrestable offence and carries an unlimited fine and up to five years imprisonment. We will take action, which could include prosecution, against anyone who illegally dumps waste.
Responsibility for the removal of illegally dumped waste on privately-owned land lies with the landowner or tenant.
