Dumped rubbish (fly-tipping)

If you've witnessed a fly-tipping incident and are prepared to make a statement in court to assist us in a prosecution please report witness details here.


There are a number of hazards associated with handling these items and if discovered on the public highway in South Derbyshire you should contact us to have them safely removed and disposed.

We advise members of the public not to pick up needles, unless it poses an immediate danger to you or other residents. Ideally, you should contact us and we will safely dispose of them.

Please note that any needles, or syringes, etc. found on educational premises (e.g. schools, nurseries, etc.) during working hours should be reported immediately to the premises directly where staff on site are trained to deal with such items.
