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
- on the floor of communal bin areas
- outside closed recycling centres and charity shops
You can report fly-tipping in Colchester online.
