Information about Fly-tipping

What is fly-tipping?

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of household or commercial waste on land which has no licence to accept waste, such as on a roadside or in a field. It currently costs the council around £350,000 to clear up fly-tipped waste from the roadside each year.

Is fly-tipping illegal?

Yes. Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and you can be fined or prosecuted.

Prosecutions are brought under Section 33 and Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, with unlimited fines and/or imprisonment for those convicted of the offence.

We also issue fixed penalty notices of £400 for smaller fly-tipping offences under the ‘Unauthorised Deposit of Waste (Fixed Penalties) Regulations 2016’.

You can report Fly-tipping directly to ERYC 

Always use a licensed waste carrier,
