Flytipping Notice

If you remove the waste yourself, you have a legal responsibility to take reasonable steps to check that people removing waste from your premises are authorised to do so.

The fly-tipping of waste is a serious criminal offence which carries a fine of up to £50,000 (unlimited if indicted to the Crown Court) or an offender can even be imprisoned for a maximum of 5 years.  

Reasonable steps to take are:

  • Ask the waste carrier to provide you with their full address and telephone number.
  • Ask to see their waste carrier licence issued by the Environment Agency or Natural Resources Wales.
  • Contact the Environment Agency directly on 03708 506 506 and ask for a free instant Waste Carrier Validation Check, alternatively you can check online on the Environment Agency website.
