Fly Tipping or Burning, household waste?

You must not dispose of household waste in a way that could harm people’s health. This includes burning household waste, which is an offence that is liable to prosecution.

Fly-tipping or dumping of waste is a crime. Leaving refuge items on the street or in parks, woodlands and fields is fly tipping. Local authorities and the Environment Agencies have a range of powers to tackle it, including fixed penalties of anything up to £400 or prosecution, or the court can impose an unlimited fine. This is also the case if somebody else flytips waste on your behalf.
