Fly-tipping on private land

It is usually the landowner's responsibility to remove the waste or an accumulation of rubbish on private land or someone's property. The cost of removing the waste may be recovered through the courts if an offender was identified.

You can find out from Land Registry who owns property or land.

If waste is deemed to be causing or likely to cause a statutory nuisance you can contact our Environmental Health Team at who may be able to serve a notice on the occupier of the land to remove it within a given time.
