Fly-tipping

West Lindsey District Council are responsible for removing fly-tipping which is on public land, such as highways, grass verges or footpaths. We aim to collect any fly-tipped waste as soon as possible but within a maximum of 10 working days.

Any fly-tipped waste on private land is the responsibility of the land owner to arrange for its removal and to take steps to prevent it happening again

If you discover fly-tipped waste:

  • do not touch the waste: fly-tipped waste can be dangerous - it may contain syringes, broken glass, asbestos, toxic chemicals or other hazardous substances.
  • visually inspect the waste: try to determine what the waste consists of and how much there is. Note the contents.
  • take note of its exact location: and also, whether it is in or near water, for example a stream, or a pond
  • do not disturb the site: there may be evidence that could be used to bring as prosecution
