Fly-tipping of waste blights our streets and countryside. It’s an environmental hazard and can cause pollution.

Fly-tipping is a serious criminal offence and upon conviction carries a potentially unlimited fine or up to five years imprisonment. It also costs the tax payer thousands of pounds every year, as the council is often required to remove and dispose of the waste appropriately.

East Northamptonshire Council is responsible for the removal of fly-tipped waste located on adopted highways and other land areas managed by the council. Removal of fly-tipping located on private land is the responsibility of the land owner.

What to do if you see someone fly-tipping

If you see someone fly-tipping, we recommend that you do not approach them in order to avoid a conflict situation. You can still help us by taking the following details:

  • Time and date of the incident
  • Location of the incident
  • Description of the person/s involved in fly tipping (e.g. sex, height, age, build, etc)
  • Description of the vehicle used (registration number, make and model, colour)
  • Description of the waste being fly tipped (quantity and type of waste), e.g. approximately 20 bags of waste; 4 metres³ of garden waste, etc.

This information can be used to bring forward a prosecution case against the person(s) involved in the incident.
