Whilst it is an offence to tip rubbish, the Police are not the main prosecuting body. If the waste constitutes a lorry-load or more, or contains hazardous waste of any kind, you should contact the Environment Agency or Crimestoppers. The Environment Agency can be contacted via a National Incident Control Centre on 0800 807060. Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555111 - reports can be made anonymously to Crimestoppers. Anything that constitutes a van-load or less, and does not contain hazardous material should be reported to the relevant local authority.
Uttlesford: Call 01799 510510 or report online at uttlesford.gov.uk
If you see any scale of fly tipping ‘in progress’ this can be reported to Essex Police, who will treat the incident as criminal activity and prioritise according to standard procedures
Food for thought:
If the Police don’t know about it, they can’t do anything about it. If the crimes aren’t reported, how can requests for additional resources be justified?
Crimes in progress should be reported to the Police by phoning 999 and crimes that have already happened should be reported by phoning 101 or by reporting on-line at https://www.essex.police.uk/do-it-online/report-non-emergency-crime/
