The County Campaign
A new campaign to stop people illegally dumping their rubbish (known as fly-tipping) in Leicestershire has been launched.
Councils across the city and county have joined forces to warn people that they face hefty fines and a criminal record if they are caught fly-tipping.
The fines can range from £400 to £5000 or unlimited in Court along with the criminal record.
Fly-tipping is a huge problem in Leicester and across each district in the county, with councils dealing with 12,000 incidents per year.
Residents can also be fined and prosecuted for using a dodgy trader who doesn’t have a waste licence and operates door-to-door.
Should you wish to report a fly-tip this can be done through the Councils website follow the link
or if you wish to have a bulky collection made this can be done by booking a collection with the Councils Waste team at https://www.oadby-wigston.gov.uk/pages/bulky_waste_collection
There is a campaign website where further details are available. http://www.lesswaste.org.uk/reduce/flytipping/

We operate a special bulky collection system where large items can be collected for disposal. This usually incurs a charge.
There are restrictions on what items can be collected for health and safety reasons. A list of these items can be found on our special bulky collection webpages.
To book a collection please contact Customer Services: 40 Bell Street, Wigston Leicestershire LE18 1AD Tel: (0116) 288 8961.
