Report fly tipping

Fly tipping is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land ie waste dumped or tipped in a place with no licence to accept it.

You can report fly tipping to us using this form.

Any of the following information you can supply would be helpful:  

  • where the fly-tip is located
  • photos of the location and/or what has been tipped
  • a description of the person(s) fly tipping
  • the date and time the fly tipping was seen, including the time the offence started and finished
  • details of any other witnesses with you
  • a description (make, colour, markings) and registration number of any vehicle involved

If the waste appears to be of a hazardous nature, or is in or near a watercourse, please contact the Environment Agency.

Please note: Due to a high number of reports, we may experience a short delay in responding to some cases of fly tipping. We will attend sites as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
