Google - Fly-Tipping


Fly-tipping is the ‘illegal deposit of any waste onto land or a highway that has no licence to accept it.’ Illegal dumps of waste can vary in scale and the type of waste involved but it causes a local nuisance and reduces the amenity value to the community. At its worst, fly-tipping can lead to serious pollution of the environment and harm to human health if hazardous waste is involved.
