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.
