Fly-tipping is spoiling our beautiful borough, but together we can reduce instances of it.
We’re encouraging everyone to dispose of their unwanted items and rubbish responsibly.
Take a look at our Dumpit and Scarper Facebook page, or search using the hashtag #EverybodyThink on social media, to see what we're doing to reduce environmental crime and increase household recycling.
If you’re asking someone else to remove your waste, ALWAYS ask to see their waste carrier’s license, even if you’re paying them, or you could be prosecuted and fined up to £50,000 if they’re not acting responsibly. Ask “are they legal, are they licensed?” and don’t be caught out!
If a vehicle is used to commit a waste crime such a fly-tipping, we can seize the vehicle and its contents. If nobody claims the vehicle within a certain amount of time we can choose to either sell or destroy the vehicle.
If you’re looking for an affordable way to get rid of your unwanted items we have some helpful suggestions, from donating them to charity to using one of our affordable and convenient methods listed below.
