Fly tipping

Help us catch fly tippers

If you witness fly-tipping, catch an incident on CCTV or have information about fly-tipping please contact us as soon as possible. Please follow our advice:

  • do not confront suspects
  • provide detailed location of the incident  (address or local landmarks) and description/photos of the rubbish
  • provide vehicle details - make, model, colour, registration and any features or signs on the vehicle (if you are able to get a photo without putting yourself at risk this will help)
  • evidence must be neutral to help us secure a conviction so please do not post evidence (such as an address) on social media
  • if the waste is in the road, blocking flowing traffic call Surrey County Councils emergency number on 0300 200 1003 (including out of hours) who will respond and make the road safe. Runnymede Borough Council Officers will attend and investigate waste that is not causing an obstruction to the road. Leave the waste in the location it was found.

Email environmentalhealth@runnymede.gov.uk  with the information or call our dedicated fly-tipping hotline on 01932 425656. Fly-tipping can also be reported online
