What is fly tipping

Flytipping is the illegal dumping of waste. If someone fly tips they may receive a fine, criminal record or in serious cases a prison sentence.

You can also be fined and get a criminal record if you pay an unlicensed person to remove your rubbish and it is fly tipped. Find out how to get rid of your unwanted items.
