Fly-tipping is illegal
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste. In simple terms it can vary from a single bag of waste upwards to thousands of tonnes of construction and demolition waste.
Fly-tipping can be unsightly. It can pose a significant threat to people, wildlife, the environment and the local economy. It also undermines legitimate waste businesses where unscrupulous operators undercut those operating within the law.
