Removal of fly tipping

Where the fly tip is located will determine who is responsible for its removal.

When the investigation is completed and any evidence is safely gathered, arrangements are made for removal. If the waste is on highways land or any other land owned by the council, Environmental Services will be contacted for removal. If the waste is on privately owned land the responsibility for removal falls to the land owner/occupier.

If we have evidence of the culprit responsible for the fly tip, then the council will consider taking the matter to prosecution.
