If you see waste that has been dumped, or see waste being dumped - report it.

If fly-tipping is on council-owned land we will remove it. We will investigate all fly-tipping incidents for evidence to help us find the person responsible, so we can prosecute them.

The fly-tip mapping layer is updated every 90 minutes.  Check the map first to make sure the fly-tip has not already been reported.
