Dumped Rubbish and Fly-Tipping
Dumped rubbish is not only unsightly it is also illegal and can lead to a fine of up to £2,500. We investigate rubbish that has been dumped and may serve a legal notice to landowners to clear rubbish that attracts or harbours vermin. You can make a report online by using the button above.
We will collect:
- Dumped rubbish from the public highway or pavement – within two working days
- Dumped rubbish from recycling sites – within one working day
- Bag(s) of unsuitable green waste left along the highway, contaminated with things like stones or rubble – within five working days
If you feel the rubbish is a health hazard, for example, if it’s attracting vermin or smelling badly report it to our Public Health team.
For hazardous or toxic waste such as asbestos or paint, see the Hazardous Waste page.
If you want to report rubbish dumped in any of the places below, please contact the relevant place.
