Vehicle seizure notices

Why vehicles are seized

We have the power to seize a vehicle, trailer or mobile plant and any contents if we believe it is being, has been, or will be, used to commit a waste crime like fly-tipping. Vehicles and their contents can be seized under the Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1989 or the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

A vehicle can be seized if:

  • it is used in fly-tipping
  • it is driven by somebody who is not registered as a waste carrier
  • it is used to transfer waste to somebody who is not registered as a waste carrier
