Fly-tipping on private land

We cannot remove fly-tipping on private land.


Landowners are legally responsible for clearing and disposing of fly-tipping on private land.


We may be able to take enforcement action depending on the type and size of waste. To discuss the options available please contact our Waste Crime Unit: 


Disposing of your waste responsibly

If you give your waste to someone else to dispose of you have a duty of care to make sure it is disposed of legally by a registered waste carrier. A list of registered waste carriers is available on the Natural Resources Wales website.


You could be fined up to £5000 in a magistrates court if you do not take reasonable measures to check operators are legitimate waste carriers and that waste will be disposed of correctly.
