Fly Tipping

‘Fly tipping’ or ‘dumping’ are the common terms used to describe the illegal deposit of waste onto land.

It is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act (1990) to fly tip any material.

TVBC’s Environmental Service investigates all reports of fly tipping and will remove fly tipped waste from public land.

If you find some fly tipped waste, please be aware that some waste is dangerous – do not touch anything, including opening any black bags or containers.

It is important to remember that fly tippers are committing a crime and they do not want to be caught. Some fly tippers may become violent so do not approach them.
