Fly tipping

Please read the following information before reporting a problem.

Fly-tipping, is the illegal dumping of rubbish or waste on land not licensed to receive it and is considered a serious crime.

Dumping rubbish is illegal and dangerous and can be detrimental to the appearance of your neighbourhood.

The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act deals with many of the problems affecting the quality of our local environment and includes sections on nuisance and abandoned vehicles, litter, graffiti, waste, noise and dogs. 

How do I report fly-tipping?

If you see items that have been fly-tipped, contact us and we'll investigate further.

Please note:

If you see someone fly-tipping or would like to report an area where fly-tipping has taken place, take note of the following:

  • the date, time and location
  • what the waste looks like and how much of it there is
  • a description of any vehicles involved, along with the vehicle's registration number.
  • report it on 01452 396 396 or email: heretohelp@gloucester.gov.uk
