fly tipping

 

 

Example of a flytipping site where a blue sofa has been illegally dumped.We ensure that South Staffordshire is kept free of litter and refuse.

It is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, for any person to fly tip / dump rubbish on any land in the open air.
 
Where Flytipping / Dumping is reported, the Council will investigate and if necessary clear the rubbish from public land.
 
If anyone reports the offence to the Council and has witnessed the incident, a statement will be taken from the witness and where possible the offender will be traced. This can be done through vehicle registration plates.  The offender, if traced, will be interviewed under caution.  Where there is sufficient evidence we will normally prosecute offenders. 
 
If found guilty of the offence at Crown Court, the offender may be liable for a fine of up to £50,000 and up to five years imprisonment.
