How do I report fly-tipping?
Fly-tipping does happen on The Ridgeway and we take it very seriously. Fly-tipping creates eyesores in the countryside, can cause problems with pollution, can attract vermin and, of course, detracts from people’s experience of using The Ridgeway.
Dealing with fly-tipping and litter takes up valuable resources in terms of time and money and, although local authorities are responsible for it (contact links to relevant local authorities/ Unitary Authorities) the National Trails team and others work in a multi-agency approach in order to manage and reduce the problem.
If you spot fly-tipping on The Ridgeway then you should contact the local authority to report it. If this is not possible then contact us and we will report it.
Members of the public can also help the Environment Agency combat environmental crime by reporting incidents to the emergency hotline on freephone: 0800 80 70 60.
