Flytipping is the illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it.
Kirklees Council will take enforcement action against the perpetrators of flytipping where there is enough evidence. This can be on private or council-owned land.
Evidence can include seeing somebody dump waste or CCTV showing waste being dumped, or there may be potential evidence in the waste.
We can issue a fine (called a fixed penalty ticket) or prosecute in a Magistrate Court for flytipping offences.
When flytipping is on private land it is the responsibility of the landowner to clear the waste appropriately.
If you use a third party to dispose of the waste then you must ensure that they hold a valid waste carriers licence. Check the Register of waste carriers, brokers and dealers
