Fly tipping

Fly tipping is rubbish that is dumped illegally onto the street, alleyways or on any private or public land in Redbridge.


Fine for you?

Each year the Council spends hundreds of thousands of pounds and countless staff hours picking up after those who dump their rubbish in the street or on private and public land.

Fly tipping is a crime and anyone caught and prosecuted could face a prison sentence or an unlimited fine.  Every incident of fly tipping is investigated and the Council now has extra CCTV resources that can be used to catch and convict those responsible.

Our Street Scene Enforcement team use wireless CCTV to identify people committing enviro-crime. The cameras are placed in hot-spot areas to aid enforcement action and then moved on to another area to tackle similar issues.

Any person(s) or business caught doing this could face an unlimited fine.


Reporting fly tipping

The Council is also encouraging residents to report fly tipping and speak up if they know who the perpetrators are. Convicting fly tippers can rely on witness statements so we are asking our residents to help to make redbridge a cleaner, greener place to live and tell us who is responsible.

If you have any information on people or businesses that you know are fly tipping then report them to us.  We take reports of fly tipping very seriously and each incident is investigated.

You may report fly tipping anonymously but if you do leave your details you can be confident that they will not be disclosed to anyone.

If you know someone who is fly tipping then tell us now by calling 020 8554 5000 or report it online.


Don't fly tip - dispose of your rubbish easily and responsibly

There are plenty of responsible ways for residents to throw away unwanted goods, no matter how big or small. As well as weekly refuse and recycling collections, the Council now has a weekly garden waste collection that runs all year long. The Chigwell Road Tip accepts a large variety of waste and is free to residents.

If you qualify you can even arrange for a free bulky waste pick up.
