Flytipping is the illegal dumping of items.

If your waste is fly tipped by you, or by someone of your behalf, you could face a fine or court action. Make sure whoever you use to get rid of your waste and items is registered waste carrier. You can get further advice here.

YOU are fly tipping if you:

  • Leave items beside street bins and recycling banks
  • Leave items on the floor of communal bin areas
  • Leave items outside closed recycling centres and charity shops

Keep Colchester looking neat, don't fly tip.
