If you’re getting someone to work on your house or garden, before you agree anything, check they are a registered waste carrier. This will mean you can be sure when your trader takes your waste away it won’t be dumped, causing damage to the beautiful countryside.

It’s easy to find out if your trader is registered and it could save you a £400 fine. Remember to get a receipt for the disposal of your waste.

Flytipping is anti-social and punishment can result in a fine of up to £50,000 or 12 months in prison. In Surrey, 100% of flytippers who go to court are convicted, so help us to stamp out this unacceptable behaviour by running a quick check online before you employ anyone.

To report flytipping in progress call 999, in other cases use our flytipping form, or contact Surrey County Council if it is blocking the road.
