Rubbish on any land (public or private)
Fly-tipping is the illegal act of dumping rubbish anywhere, on any land, with no intention of having it cleared.
Common fly-tipped items include furniture and household appliances, building rubble, carpeting, shopping trolleys, hazardous waste and any other items of waste. A fly-tip can also be any rubbish bag, bulky or loose material that has been dumped in a public space or left on land without the landowner's permission.
