Your rubbish, your responsibility

Line up of prosecutions for fly-tipping

Monday 8 October 2018


Many people could be contributing to the fly-tipping problem in Essex, and have no idea they are doing anything wrong.


Remember - if it's your waste, it's your responsibility. If your waste is found dumped, even if someone else has done it, you could be responsible for the crime.  If you use a trader to remove your waste, there are some quick and easy ways you can protect yourself.


By carrying out some simple checks before you hand your waste (anything from a sofa, black bags, mattresses, fridge freezers or building waste) to someone else to get rid of it will reduce the chance of it being fly-tipped.  


You could unwittingly end up with a criminal record and face an unlimited fine, if a rogue trader dumps your waste illegally.
