Who clears fly-tipped material?

On council land or a public highway fly-tips will be cleared by the council.

On private land the land owner/management company is responsible for clearance, but contact us and will visit to see if there is sufficient evidence to investigate.


Land owners should consider what they can reasonably do to prevent further tipping on their land. Information is available from the National Fly-tipping Prevention Group
