From a small bag of rubbish to an unwanted mattress or worn-out settee, if rubbish is dumped somewhere without permission it is classed as fly-tipping. Fly-tipping is a crime – help put a stop to it.
No-one likes to see fly-tipping. It looks a mess, can be unsafe and is expensive to clear-up. It’s also a crime.
Wiltshire Council have launched the ‘We’re Targeting Fly-tippers’ campaign for help to put a stop to fly-tipping in Wiltshire.
If you spot any fly-tipping, see rubbish being dumped or know someone who is doing it, don't confront them – report fly-tipping to Wiltshire Council by going to www.wiltshire.gov.uk/community-environment-wtf .
It would be helpful if you could provide them with as much information as possible including:
- the registration number and description of the tippers’ vehicle such as the colour, make and model
- what the tippers look like
- what sort of rubbish was being dumped
A reward of up to £200 in high street vouchers may be offered for information leading to a successful prosecution or payment of a Fixed Penalty Notice.
