Fly-tipping and litter
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of household or trade waste on streets, wasteland or green spaces.
The council will remove fly-tipping from public land, it is the responsibility of land owners to clear if it is on private land.
If you see fly-tipping please use the form below to tell us, we need to know:
- where the fly-tipping is
- what has been dumped and how much there is
- whether you saw it happening and details of the person or vehicle if you have them

Report litter and request street cleaning
Every household in Newport has a legal responsibility to dispose of their rubbish in an appropriate manner.
If you have your rubbish removed and it ends up being fly-tipped, you could be held responsible and fined.
Find a registered waste carrier via the Environment Agency.
Always ask to see a waste carrier’s certificate and do not use waste contractors who won’t show you an original certificate
Keep a record of the waste carrier’s details in case they fly-tip your waste and it is traced back to you
Businesses must always get a copy of a waste transfer note from the person who takes the waste away
