Fly-tipping, dumping rubbish, is an environmental crime. If you fly-tip you can be fined or jailed. It’s a blot on our landscape and a threat to wildlife. We can all fight fly-tipping by reporting dumped rubbish and, if possible, who dumped it.
Everyone, including businesses, must be responsible for how they get rid of rubbish, even when it’s left your home or premises. If you pay someone to remove your rubbish such as man-with-a-van, builders, gardeners, carpet-layers or others, ask to see their waste carrier’s licence, and make sure you know where your rubbish will go. If you don’t you could be fined.
To report fly-tipping use Somerset West and Taunton Council’s report fly-tipping online form or phone 0300 304 8000.
