Littering and fly tipping

67% of fly tipped waste comes from households. Your rubbish is your responsibility. If your waste is found dumped (even if someone else did it), you could be held responsible.

Reducing littering in Hertfordshire

District and borough councils are running a number of initiatives, including:

  • anti litter posters in common littering areas
  • enforcement officers who can issue fixed penalty notices
  • recycling on-the-go bins in public areas
  • litter picking equipment to borrow
  • talks on littering for schools and community groups.

What's being done in your local area?



The Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner has created a video to show the firm line being taken with flytippers caught in the county.

This crushing result is being shared to highlight a clear message to fly tippers: this could happen to you too.

If you see fly tipping happening, call 101.

If you find a fly tip, please report it to us.
