Fly Tipping

Pembrokeshire County Council is committed to stamping out the illegal disposal of waste. The Council's commitment to this project will support measures to combat fly tipping in Pembrokeshire over the next three years, as part of a co-ordinated programme across South West Wales.

The project will explore the causes and effects of fly-tipping and illegal waste disposal. The outcomes can then be directly related to localities within Pembrokeshire, particularly in known hot spot areas. Education and enforcement initiatives will target affected communities in Pembrokeshire and if necessary clearances of tipped material and environmental improvements may also be carried out.

As waste disposal costs increase there is a danger that fly-tipping will substantially increase. Education and enforcement must go hand in hand to combat the problem of litter and illegal waste disposal. Initiatives from this project should reduce the adverse environmental consequences of fly-tipping on the landscape of Pembrokeshire, particularly in blighted areas. This will result in cleaner neighbourhoods, raising the amenity value and generating pride in Pembrokeshire communities.

Protect yourself
Every household in Pembrokeshire has a legal responsibility to dispose of its rubbish in the appropriate manner.

If you have your rubbish removed and it ends up being fly-tipped, you could be held responsible and fined.

Remember ...

  • always ask to see a waste carrier's certificate and do not use waste contractors who won't show you an original certificate
  • keep a record of the waste carrier's details in case they fly-tip your waste and it is traced back to you
  • businesses must always get a copy of a waste transfer note from the person who takes the waste away
