Fly-Tipping and Fly-Posting

Fly-tipping is the unauthorised dumping of any rubbish waste on land other than at an authorised waste disposal or recycling facility. Fly-posting is the act of placing advertising posters or flyers in illegal places.

Fly-Tipping

Fly-tipping is a criminal activity, which stops people from enjoying and using our public spaces. It can be a hazard to road users and is very costly to clear up; it is also punishable by either a fine or possibly a custodial sentence.

Report Fly-Tipping ›

Once a fly-tip has been reported to Mole Valley District Council (MVDC), an officer will investigate the incident, arrange for removal of fly-tipping from the public highway and prosecute the person responsible where identifiable. If a fly tip occurs on private land, MVDC will still investigate any report made; however, the responsibility of any clean up will lie with the land owner.

When reporting an incident of fly-tipping, give as much information as you can about the nature, location and size of the fly-tipping.

If you see fly-tipping in progress, please contact the police directly on 101.

Fly-Posting

In most areas, it is illegal to place posters on private and public property without prior consent.

If you would like to report an incident of fly-posting on the public highway, please contact Surrey County Council Highways on 03456 009 009.
