Environmental enforcement

Littering and fly-tipping is illegal.

If you are caught, an on the spot littering fine will be issued for £150 or up to £400 for fly-tipping.

Whether it comes from a household or a business, the dumping of black sacks of rubbish, mattresses and other unwanted items on the road, pavement, park or anywhere else is fly-tipping. 

As a minimum, the fine is £400 and the maximum penalty is an unlimited fine or up to 5 years imprisonment. We will prosecute where we need too.

Please report anyone you witness dumping illegally.
