Fly-tipping is when bulky items are left/dumped on public or private property. Such items may include furniture, cookers, fridges and other items of waste. If these items are from your domestic property you can take them to your Local Household Waste Recycling centre free of charge.

It is illegal to fly tip with a potential of up to £50,000 in fines in addition to a maximum prison sentence of two years.

Fly-tipping is removed from public land and highways by our contractor The Landscape Group. Winchester City Council cannot accept responsibility for fly-tipping on private property it is up to the land owner to arrange removal.

Large domestic items can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling centre free of charge.
