Reporting Fly Tipping: Choose the Method That Works Best for You

Added 18 June 2023

Keeping our community free from fly tipping is a collective effort, and we appreciate your dedication to maintaining a clean and beautiful environment. To report instances of fly tipped waste, we highlight two convenient options: using the Dover District Council website or the Country Eye app on your smartphone.

Dover District Council Website:

If you prefer reporting through the council’s official website, we have a dedicated Fly Tipping Reporting Form that simplifies the process. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Location of the Report: Specify the exact location of the fly tipping incident. Providing accurate details, such as landmarks or nearby addresses, helps identify and address the issue promptly.
  2. Details of the Report/Enquiry: Describe the fly tipped waste in detail. Include information about the type of materials dumped and estimate the quantity. Additional observations or relevant details can be included as well.
  3. Type of Waste: Indicate the category or type of waste that has been dumped. Whether it’s household waste, construction materials, furniture, appliances, or any other relevant category, this information assists in assessing the situation appropriately.
  4. Upload a Picture (if available): If you have a photograph of the fly tipped waste, please upload it using the form. Visual evidence greatly aids in understanding the extent of the issue and helps in the investigation.
  5. Details of Who Deposited the Waste (if known): If you have any information regarding the person or individuals who deposited the waste, please provide those details. Identifying the responsible parties aids in taking appropriate action and preventing further occurrences.

Please ensure you have all the necessary information ready before proceeding with the form, as pages have a time-out period of one hour. To navigate between pages, please use the “previous” button at the bottom of each page instead of your browser’s back button.

Country Eye App:

For those who prefer the convenience of a smartphone app, the Country Eye app is an excellent choice. It empowers you to report various issues, including fly tipping, directly to the relevant authorities. Here are some key features:

  • Reporting Functionality: The app allows you to report fly tipping and a wide range of other issues, providing detailed information and attaching photos.
  • Geolocation and Mapping: Country Eye utilizes GPS coordinates to pinpoint the exact location of the reported incident, ensuring accurate reporting.
  • Easy-to-Use Interface: The user-friendly interface of the app makes it accessible and intuitive for individuals of all technical abilities.
  • Direct Communication: Country Eye facilitates direct communication between you and the responsible authority, allowing for additional information exchange and updates.
  • Community Engagement: By encouraging residents to report incidents, the app promotes community engagement and empowers individuals to contribute to the well-being of their local area.

Whichever method you choose, your reports play a crucial role in combating fly tipping and preserving the cleanliness of our community. Once you submit a report, the Dover District Council or the relevant authority will review it and take appropriate action as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your commitment to keeping our community clean, and we appreciate your active participation in reporting fly tipping incidents. Together, we can make a significant difference.
