Illegal disposal of waste or 'fly tipping' ruins our parks and open spaces. Middlesbrough Council investigates incidents of fly tipping and prosecutes those responsible when sufficient evidence can be gathered. The maximum penalty in court is a £50,000 fine.
We will remove fly tipping from council-owned land within 24 hours of notification on a normal working day.
You can let us know about fly tipping using Report It.
When you report a fly tip in Middlesbrough, please tell us the exact location. If you can't do this, please give us as much information about the location as possible, e.g. the nearest property number, street light number, or road junction.
