Wealden District Council

Fly tipping

Reporting a problem

We are currently upgrading our online form to report fly tipping, this should be completed by 10 October 2017.  If you would like to discuss a fly tip related issue please contact us using the details below.

Fly tipping is the illegal dumping of waste including:

  • General Household Waste
  • Domestic Items such as fridges, beds and washing machines
  • Garden Waste
  • Commercial Waste such as builders rubble, tyres and clinical waste

We can remove fly tips if they are on:

  • The Highway
  • Lay-bys
  • Bus shelters
  • Subways
  • Council car and coach parks
  • Recycling centres

We ask land owners to report fly tipping on their own land to us as soon as possible. Although we will not clear the waste from private land we will gain a clearer image of the extent of fly tipping within the District. We may also be able to prosecute the offenders if we are called out before the fly tip is disturbed.

For advice on how to minimise the risk of fly tipping on your land view the Tackling Fly Tipping Website (external link).

Once fly tipping has been reported, it will be followed up with an inspection.  An instruction is then issued to arrange for the items to be collected.

We aim to clear all fly tips within 5 working days.

All fly tips are investigated and we prosecute when able.
