Q113: I know someone who is fly tipping, what can I do?

You should gather as much information as possible, type of rubbish being dumped, where and when dumped and contact your local authority, normally the Environmental Protection Department. If the amount being dumped is a very large quantity then you should report the matter to the Environment Agency.

  • National Customer Contact Centre (NCCC): 03708 506 506.
  • Dumb Dumpers: 08452 304 090
  • The Environment Agency: 0800 80 70 60

If there is a large amount of rubbish being dumped there and then, please contact the police with as much information as possible including descriptions of the people, vehicles involved and registration numbers because in extreme cases the police can take action, although they may choose to work with the local authority Environmental Protection Department.
