Fly tipping makes our communities unsightly and, apart from damaging the environment, can be unsafe.

Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and carries a fine; you can even be sent to prison. If you allow your car or vehicle to be used for fly-tipping, even if you are not driving yourself, you can still be prosecuted. The Police have the power to seize vehicles used for fly-tipping.
