Amount of fly-tipped waste
If you deposit an amount of waste ranging from a single bin bag up to a small van load, we consider this as 'small scale fly-tipping' and we can issue you with an FPN.
If you deposit hazardous waste or waste in excess of this amount, we'll progress your case directly for prosecution.

How we try to prevent fly-tipping
We proactively monitor against fly-tipping through a combination of patrols and 'stop and search' operations in partnership with North Yorkshire Police.
