Fly Tipping

A recent letter to the parish council from the county council draws our attention to the fact that there is an on-going problem with the illegal fly tipping of tyres in East Tynedale.
NCC, the Police and the Environment Agency have put several measures in place to combat this but members of the public are asked to help by keeping their eyes open and reporting any suspected instances. The letter details various methods of reporting and these are listed below:

  • Call 101 – where tyres or other illegal fly tipping is in the process of being discarded with a reminder that key information such as registration numbers, makes and colours of vehicles , descriptions of people involved are encouraged to be reported
  • Call 0845 6006400 – which is the NCC contact number  where fly tipping or tyre dumps are discovered so that appropriate service can be notified
  • Alternatively use NCC ‘Report it’ link on the website or ASK email  facility to make a report as above
  • Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 or complete report on line. This is a confidential service which has a reward incentive for information leading to the prosecution of offenders.
