Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish on land that is not a proper recycling centre
The council will collect rubbish on council land such as roads, pavements, public car park, green space or council housing estates.
Rubbish in water must be reported and removed by the Environment Agency »
The Canal and River Trust are responsible for removal of rubbish in or around canals and on tow paths.
Private property owners are responsible for their own land and its clearance of any fly tipping. The council will not normally remove items from private land unless in default of a legal notice and at the expense of the property owner. Wherever possible, evidence will be gathered to show who deposited the waste and formal actions through the courts will be taken.
