Fly tipping is illegal, unacceptable and costs time and money when council resources could be better spent elsewhere.
Unfortunately fly-tipping happens all over South Lanarkshire, not just a problem in Blantyre. So please help us keep our communities clear from this unsightly and illegal action which has a large impact on our environment.
Head of Facilities Waste and Grounds Services Alistair McKinnon said: “Please be responsible and dispose of your waste correctly or store it until you are able to.Do not accept offers of disposal from companies unless you know they are registered waste carriers and know where it is going to end up.”
“Any individual or business who fly tips is committing an offence and could face a fine of up to £40,000.”
If you see anyone dumping rubbish/waste or want to report fly-tipping you can do this directly by completing the council’s online form. It’s a link worth bookmarking. Please provide as much information as possible such as location and the type of waste that has been dumped.
