What is fly tipping?
Fly tipping is when someone dumps waste illegally in a place that is not authorised to accept it.
This also includes leaving items that are not classed as household waste, out for bin collection. Any items that are not classed as household waste, will not be taken away by bin collection and will be classed as fly tipping.
Fly tipping not only makes your estate look untidy it also attracts pests and can cause serious injury.
Rather than fly tip, you should dispose of waste through your bin collection days, taking items to a recycling centre or organising a collection for bulky items.
If you fly tip your waste, you could have legal action taken against you and have to pay a fine.
Find your local community recycling centre:
Cardiff – Recycling Centres (cardiff.gov.uk)
If you have large, bulky items that you need to remove, you can organise for your local council to collect these from outside your home, for a charge.
For more information or to book a collection, visit your local council’s page:
Cardiff – Bulky item collections (cardiff.gov.uk)
Top tip – Tenants in Penrhys came together to organise their bulky item collection and split the cost between them.

Trivallis is working in partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to help improve our estates. The Council Environmental Enforcement Officer works within the Neighbourhoods team at Trivallis. They are there to tackle environmental crimes such as fly tipping and abandoned vehicles on our land and use their enforcement powers to stop this from happening. They also provide advice and support to tenants, helping people to dispose of their waste responsibly and correctly.
Trivallis has a joint working agreement with Cardiff Council Environmental Enforcement Team. We share information with the local council that allows them to prosecute environmental crimes such as fly tipping on our land.
