What is fly tipping?

Fly-tipping is the illegal disposal of household, industrial, commercial or other ‘controlled’ waste without a waste management licence. The waste can be liquid or solid. Controlled waste includes garden refuse and larger domestic items such as fridges or mattresses. Fly-tipping is not the same as littering. More information on litter can be found in the Library Briefing Paper on Litter.
