Fly-tipping wall of shame

Wall of shame banner deep

 

We're cracking down on fly-tipping in Sandwell.

Every year we receive hundreds of reports of dumped rubbish. This not only makes the area look unsightly, but it also costs you, the council taxpayer, money to clean up.

We're using this wall of shame to share details of fly-tipping incidents and asking for your help to find the culprits. If we catch those responsible, they will receive a fine or may face prosecution.

We'll also share details of the fines and court action we have taken on recent cases of fly-tipping on this page.

Be warned - if you dump rubbish, you may be fined and your offences could end up on our wall of shame which we'll be sharing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where we have thousands of followers. Your dumped rubbish might also be featured in the local newspaper and on news websites.

Think before you fly-tip. Do the right thing - if you need to get rid of something, book a bulky waste collection or book an appointment at the tip.
