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.
Fly tipping is a illegal offence and since the introduction of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act, 2005, can carry fines of up to £50,000 if tried in a Magistrates Court, or an unlimited fine and up to 5 years imprisonment if prosecuted in a Crown Court.
Furthermore, fly tipping is unsightly and poses real safety risks it must, therefore, be removed. To report an incident of fly tipping on the highway, please contact the Environment Team.
Winchester City Council cannot accept responsibility for flytipping on private property it is up to the land owner to arrange removal.
