Fly-tipping is a criminal offence. Use this service to tell us about fly-tipping.  

If you see someone fly-tipping please also report the details to the police. 

We don't remove fly-tipping from private properties. 

If you're a landowner, it's your responsibility to remove waste that has been dumped illegally on your land and dispose of it responsibly. For advice on preventing fly-tipping visit https://www.zerowastescotland.org.uk/litter-flytipping/private-land.

Before you start

We need to know:

What happens next

First we'll check who owns the land.

If the land belongs to us, we'll carry out a site visit and arrange for the appropriate team to remove the items.
