Litter and street cleaning

Fly tipping

If you see anyone dumping rubbish:

Report it to Dumb Dumpers

If you find any dumped waste

Please let us know and we will arrange to clean it up and try to identify who is responsible.

Report fly tipping

Fly tipping spoils the environment and takes time and money to clean up - money that could be spent on other services.

Dumping waste is a serious offence, and anyone caught can be prosecuted.

Numbers of fly tipping events

We do not record the type of waste that we pick up from fly tipped materials, but we do count the number of fly tipping events that take place on Council land, and privately owned land. This data was not reported monthly until 2019.
