Newark and Sherwood District Council in Nottinghamshire give advice on what to do about fly-tipping to the public





A council has reiterated guidelines to the public about waste dumped by fly-tipping.

A spokesman from the Newark and Sherwood District Council advised people to be aware that any waste labelled with warning tape stating 'Illegally dumped rubbish under investigation' is being dealt with but cannot be removed as quickly as normal

“In cases where the tape is used the waste may require specialist removal, such as asbestos, or may be on private land where we may need to conduct a land registry search to ascertain who owns the land.” said the spokesman.

“You do not need to report items labelled with this tape.

“If you see any fly-tipping without this labelling please report it to us.

“If you find evidence, please leave it where it is and let us know as soon as possible.”
