Fly-tipping

Fly-tipping is an environmental crime and an unnecessary activity given the many appropriate avenues for disposal of household and commercial waste in place across Perth & Kinross.

What is fly-tipping?

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste - from a bin bag of household rubbish to large quantities of tyres or construction waste. Flytipping can be found anywhere, from local authority land to roadsides to private land. It is a serious environmental crime which not only blights some of Scotland's most beautiful attractions, but can pose a risk to humans and wildlife.

During the financial year 2010/11 local authorities reported that they dealt with an estimated 62,400 incidents of flytipping.
