Fly tipping is a serious offence that we take very seriously. CDC are working hard to tackle the issue, but CDCneed your help.
If you see someone fly tipping or would like to report an area where an incidence of fly tipping has recently taken place, please report this to CDC using the link at the bottom of this page.
You will need to make a note of the following, which will help us take action:
The date, time and place of the occurrence.
What the waste looks like and how much there is.
A description of any vehicles involved, including the vehicles registration numbers, if known.
A description of any persons seen to be involved in the offence.
A description of events as you saw them happen.
Advice from the CDC website –
“Detailed reports with this information are very important in helping us to prosecute offenders, but be sure not to put yourself in any danger to get it. Fly tippers are doing something illegal so they do not want to be caught. Some may even become violent so you should not approach them.
Only approach the site when you are sure that it is safe to do so, but don’t touch any of the waste as the contents could be hazardous — always assess from a distance.
You can also report larger scale fly tipping to the Environment Agency.”
