‘Fly-tipping’ - what is it?

‘Fly-tipping’ simply means the unauthorised depositing of controlled waste on land that does not have a licence to take it. In other words, it is something more than littering. The exact details of this offence can be found under Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Fly-tipping is harmful to the environment, polluting, unpleasant to look at, anti-social and costly to clear up.

Every reported fly-tipping is investigated, examined, photographed and then passed on to our contractors to clear. This takes a lot of time and effort for something that could be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) at Gwalchmai and Penhesgyn, free of charge and dealt with correctly.

How do we deal with fly-tipping?

People who commit this offence are breaking the law.

Fly-tipping is investigated and items at the scene of an illegal dumping are examined for evidence. This evidence is to establish a name and address, personal bank account details, company names or anything that will point the Enforcement Officer towards the culprit.
