How to tackle fly-tipping

If fly-tipping in our communal areas is an issue where you live, you can report this to us.

We actively work in partnership with local council officials and Environmental Health agencies to share information that may be used to identify and prosecute offenders.

We can then take action to remove it from your neighbourhood and look to pass the costs involved onto the perpetrators rather than add this to the service charge.

What to do with bulky rubbish?

  • If you’re thinking of buying a large item like a fridge or a mattress, check beforehand if the company will take the old one away for a small fee
  • Your local council will also take away large items for a fee. Please go to your local council's website for more details about how you can correctly dispose of items you don't need anymore and report fly-tipping to your local authority 
  • You can also donate items to Freecyle, an online forum offering a chance to give or collect used items for free from your local area. Membership is free so why not sign up today? Visit the Freecycle website here.

Fly-tipping: top facts

  • We don’t need CCTV proof to prosecute someone who fly-tips. If we have reason to believe they’re responsible, we can pass that information onto the environmental health department

  • Your service charge does NOT cover the cost of disposing of large items of rubbish. If we have to remove a lot of bulky waste, like garden rubble or sofas, we will have to increase your service charge to pay for this
  • Anyone caught illegally dumping waste faces an on-the spot penalty of up to £400
  • Fly-tipping is a serious criminal offence which carries a fine of up to £50,000 (unlimited if the case goes to the Crown Court) or an offender can even be sent to prison.
