A new way to report fly-tipping

A new way to report fly-tipping has been launched by Thirteen.

22 Mar 2021

The online form allows anyone to report fly-tipping and will see the information received directly by Thirteen’s estate services team.

Fly-tipped rubbish often includes old mattresses, chairs, broken fridges and general household waste. As well as being unsightly, it presents a significant health and safety risk.

Head of estate services Michael Hall said: “We’re making every effort to tackle the issue of fly-tipping on the estates where our customers live.

“Fly-tipping is a crime. We want everyone to take pride in the area they live and we want to see those who don’t, prosecuted for their actions.

“We’ve made it even easier to report fly-tipping. You don’t have to provide your details. It can be done anonymously.

“We’re continuing to work closely with partner organisations and local authorities to put a stop to this.

“We want everyone to help make their community a better place to live and we’re encouraging everyone - if you see it, please report it.

“Where there is evidence of who has dumped rubbish, incidences are being reported to the local authorities for action.

“We’ve already seen the impact which our specialist fly-tipping investigator is making, in an attempt to crack down on surging levels of fly-tipping and I’d like to thank members of the community who report fly-tipping to us and provide evidence.”

Anyone can report fly-tipping by completing the simple form at www.thirteengroup.co.uk/flytipping or by phoning 0300 111 1000 and asking to speak to a member of the estate services team.
