Grime Watch

Are you having a clear out?  Don't be tempted to dump your unwanted items.  Please take them to the local Civic Amenity Centres (Tips) or organise a bulky waste collection (charges apply).  If you recognise any of the dumped items on this page, please let us know.

Grime Watch will be updated with pictures taken by council officers of unsolved fly-tipping. We want to catch the people responsible for these crimes - but we need your help. The following flytippings are our most recent - for past flytippings please see the Past Grimes page.

If you have any information about the 'unsolved grimes' below email us at or call 01785 619402. All information will be treated in confidence.

If you are know of fly tipping in your area you can report it using the following form or give us a call on 01785 619402.
