Fly Tipping

Environmental Protection Act 1990

Fly-tipping is the illegal deposit of waste on land, contrary to Section 33 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Shropshire Council is responsible for removing items which have been dumped on public land and highways; and where possible will take action against fly tippers.

The Environment Agency will investigate the more serious incidents of illegally deposited waste.

Items deposited on private land are the responsibility of the landowner.

If you see any waste, household or other types of waste, or discarded items on the highway or any other public place you may
