Fly-tipping & Illegal Encampments

Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of waste on land, usually at the side of roads and on private land. It can range from a black bag of household rubbish to van-loads of building rubbish.

If you see fly-tipping in progress on the Surrey highway, please call 999 and ask for the police. If you've found waste already fly-tipped, contact GBC Customer Services on 01483 505050.  However, if a road is blocked and is impassable, report fly-tipping on the highway to Surrey County Council.
