Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish or bulky items on land where dumping isn't allowed.

It can be dangerous to human and animal health.

Fly-tipping pollutes land and waterways.

It's expensive to clear away fly-tipped rubbish

Fly-tipping is not only damaging to the environment and a blight on our Borough, it also places extra stress on our staff at this challenging time.
