Fly-tipping

#CrimeNotToCare

Your Rubbish, Your Responsibility

If you need to dispose of household waste, it's important to know you have responsibility for making sure it's disposed of legally.

Whether you hire a company or a 'man with a van' to take away your waste, you must make sure the business which collects your rubbish has the correct Waste Carrier Licence and can supply you with a copy of a waste transfer note.

It's quick and easy to find out whether a business has a Waste Carrier Licence. You can check the Environment Agency's online register or call 0370 8506 506.

If your rubbish gets fly-tipped and you cannot prove you took the necessary steps before paying for its disposal, you're responsible.

You could face a fixed penalty notice of up to £400 or be taken to court.

We can collect bulky household items such as fridges and mattresses.
