Seen some fly tipping?

You can report fly tipping using our online form.

If you know who did it, it would be great if you could email us at or give us a call on 01226 772468. 

If the fly tipping includes hazardous waste, like asbestos or chemical waste, then we'll pass all details onto a specialist contractor and ask them to remove it, which may take longer than 7 working days.

Do you have large items you need to get rid of?

Please don't dump them, look after your environment by disposing of them in the right way and arrange a special collection.
