Fly-tipping on private land
Fly-tipping on private land (eg on the front/rear garden or land attached to a property) is the responsibility of the owner/occupier and must be removed by them. The council will only take formal action against the owner/occupier if the fly-tipped site does not comply with environmental standards or is deemed a health hazard. This would be determined by a site visit.
Owners may be served with a formal notice requiring them to remove refuse within 21 days.
Collection of bulky items (special collections)
Residents can request the removal of bulky items. There is a charge for this service.
