Fly Tipping

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste and is a criminal offence.

Examples of fly-tipping include:

  • dumping waste on land where there is no waste management licence, including public highways
  • leaving rubbish or waste outside household waste recycling centres
  • giving your waste to someone else to fly-tip
  • allowing waste to be dumped on your own property

The Police and local authorities take action against any householder or business who illegally disposes of their waste, or who does not ensure that their waste is collected by a registered waste service firm.

You are legally responsible for any household waste produced on your property or where you live. This responsibility is called your “duty of care”.

You face an unlimited fine if your waste ends up fly-tipped and you cannot show that you took reasonable steps to prevent it.

       Report fly-tipping to Test Valley Borough Council on 01264 368000

Has Anyone Seen Reggie

Reggie is a grey tabby cat belonging to Maggie Nicholls at Well Cottage.
He prowls Monxton sporting a distinctive orange high-vis vest. He covers quite a bit of territory so most of you will probably have seen him.
He did not come home last night, which is not like him, and Maggie thinks he may have been shut in someone’s shed or outhouse.
