Eight residents and two businesses in Hull have been ordered to pay a total of over £13,000 after being prosecuted for fly-tipping.

Hull City Council has warned people about disposing of their waste legally to avoid facing enforcement action. The warning follows the ten prosecutions in May that resulted in fines and costs totalling £13,060.

Doug Sharp, head of street cleansing and waste management at the council, said: “Fly-tipping is a crime and we do not tolerate it in Hull. It is unsightly, potentially harmful to human health and damaging to the environment.

“We urge residents to dispose of their waste in the correct way using our accessible services, schemes, and household waste centres across the city. We also encourage residents to report those who do not dispose of their waste legally.”

Fly-tipping is defined as the “illegal deposit of any waste onto land that does not have a licence to accept it”. Anyone found guilty of fly-tipping faces receiving a substantial fine - the fixed penalty charge for fly-tipping from January 2024 is now £1,000.
