Fly Tip Clearances

What is fly tipping and how does it affect the surrounding area?

Fly-tipping refers tothe illegal dumping of waste on land without the landowner’s permission or a valid license to dump waste. Fly-tipping can cause serious environmental damage, especially if residential or commercial waste is hazardous.

The illegal dumping of waste can encourage rodents and pests in the local area, harm the environment and have a damaging impact on people who come into contact with it. Fly-tipped waste also rapidly attracts more fly-tipping too. As such, the waste needs to be cleared safely and professionally and the area cleaned afterwards to help ensure the area is left in a natural state.

Once the fly-tipping area is cleared, the waste is taken to a registered waste transfer agent who processes the waste material and ensures it is disposed of in accordance with all waste disposal and environmental regulations.
