Fly tipping is a large amount of waste that has been left on land without the owner’s permission, it may be dumped in the same area on more than one occasion.
It is your responsibility to know what happened with your waste. If you have some work done on your property or if you pay someone to take away your waste, make sure they are registered with the Environment Agency. You can check the register of waste carriers on the Enivornmental Agency website.
In addition if a person is buying or collecting scrap metal they are also required to have correct licences, please see our scrap metal dealer licensing webpage for further information.
Leaving bin bags in lay-bys or beside bins is also fly tipping. We have a local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) within North Kesteven which is run by Lincolnshire County Council. You can also take additional recycling and bulky household items such as fridge/freezers for recycling and disposal. For more information please see our HWRC webpage.
