How do I report an incident of fly tipping?


The Kent County Council 'Clean Kent' Campaign has provided the following information regarding flytipping:-

Flytipping is the common term used to describe waste illegally deposited on land as described under section 33 of the Environment Protection Act 1990.

Local and central government narrow this term down to represent any waste dumped that is too large to be removed by a normal hand-sweeping barrow.  In simple terms, a single full bin bag upwards may constitute a flytip.

Local authorities are cracking down on flytipping offenders with excellent results.  Residents play a vital role in this as many recent court cases have been as a direct result of members of the public who have witnessed offences taking place.

If you witness flytipping or flytipped rubbish; any information that you can provide will greatly assist in the fight against this illegal activity.

If you witness flytipping in progress, please phone the Police on 999 to report the details.  Do not put yourself in any danger.  This information will then be passed to Clean Kent for investigation.

You can also report flytipping to Dover District Council using the following link:-
